This tiny poem reminds me of an old story 'Five blind persons and the elephant'. Unless we look at a thing as a whole or as a unit, we shall not be able to make out what it is. Very sensible piece.

He is a Mexican poet, essayist, and political thinker. His works reflect many influences, including Marxism, surrealism, and Aztec mythology. A poet involved in politics, since his country is at the basic of a great revolution. I can appreciate his political prefernce
