Magic Realism

by Marjorie Jensen

Like a Cortazar character, I fall in a dream,
question reality. With my eyes closed, I see
unarmed warrior dancers at a temple festival
slaughtered- my blood flowing out of them,
my blood unable to heal them. I wake, I see
a white curator’s obvious Aztec admiration
as she guides me through her exhibit. She
speaks of alphabets, legal documents. I see

only an echo of my dream. I try to close my eyes,
try to open my eyes. Time cycles, bringing death,
rebirth, uncertainty of now. Shifting paradigms
can’t explain this,  this impermanence of self.
The massacre is tactile. I wipe blood off my cheek,
look at my fingers and find tears. Sun face down.
