UNDER THE VOLCANO


My house sits in the shadow

of a very large volcano,

and I never know just when

it will once again awaken .


Everybody thinks I’m mad,

to want to keep on living,

where I may get fried

some day, into a little cinder.


I can’t explain to anyone

that the danger’s what I love,

to live right on the edge of it,

it keeps me so alive.


It also keeps all the rest,

of the  world away,

and I get my own volcano

and all my empty space.
