Santiago

Santiago, Chile

“All of my love is here and it has stayed: stuck to the rocks, to the sea, and to the mountains.”

Raul Zurita

Twelve years since I stepped upon this continent:

A vague memory of tango in the streets

Shrouded in jet lag.

Now I remember the calm outskirts of a raging city,

A taste of the ragged Andes once only seen from the skies,

The flaky crumble of fresh pastry

As strangers wrap themselves around my mother tongue

And I find comfort on the other side of my world.
