Jorge Luis Borges

To mine the silver poetry and prose
of the prismatic, prideful Argentine,
is to light on ineffable frescoes
of a most universal human mind.

Rooted in the stark, elegant tango
of his mental land, he does heady dance
striding urbane wit and pampas argot
to unveil human mind of vast expanse.

Fated blood spilt from dagger or pistol
punctuate terse phantasmagoric
tales woven in labyrinths visceral
where human mind mystical breathes magic.

Learned fabulist who transmutes mundane
in blink of a word to cosmic refrain.
