"MY HEART IS A SANCTUARY" From Bleats and Ballads Acro the Universe By Maria Luisa Arenzana Magañas I feel every animal in every cell on my skin jumping from pore to vine, flying its atmospheres.

Every animal rescued remains in a little bubbly cell —cosy, revered, silky— that I fly with oxygen spelled, lettering and pulmonary winds blowing the insides of a soft blot air balloon, displacing the “hes” and “shes” faraway from “Earthies” to their still incipient “nooM”, our now expatriated Moon. Eight pints of inky blood circulate and print the tragic face of someone, scintillas of their souls lost in the world, lastly found in me. Every pore of my skin is a remainder of every animal in need. When I work in the garden, the scantiest cut or blister in one or more of my fingers, contains the pail of a pig with the exact amount of her blood, rose madder and thick. And I sob while I sing because I’ve become more than what I saw or see, mostly what they hide or hid. There’s a deep cyanic sky in me, though, pure, bright, crystalline and awed, a veil of twinkling glow made with the finest ethers where we all join, and blow the highest hopes in such a tremendous gurgle, that I explode, little wishes of utopian wonders, handcrafting the infinite cosmic kite against the darkness of the unknown. And there I play my music, I create a new path for the melody yet unborn I become the new song beating, rescuing, singing the desires of my soul, the revival of my forgotten me, the potential I behold at the very core of what I once was far beyond my flesh and bone. My heart is a sanctuary"
