Third Pagan Poem

among concealed mirrors, he resurrects
Alexander of Macedon from the mosaics, friezes
and reliefs: an eagle still there lands:
with its ancient eyes that once saw
what was unseen before and after
the harmonious white body flecked with scars of deep wounds
in front of which the malice of snakes
and ferociousness
of the beasts dries out
– in the first dream – this body is already caressed by snakes
and hugged by beasts, while it alone
nests darkness in its curves, as swarthy camels
they drink it with harmonious dances, magic, chants
and other luring speeches of knotted tongues –
    as those
    in which I tasted the equalizing
    of bliss and arduousness
