Poema: "Diván"


Esto aquí amontonado
no es más que sobras,
basural:
una resma de papel
caligrafiado e ilegible.
Mis mejores poemas.

(De El arrullo de la torcaza, de autor anónimo)

The final line turns the somber tone on its head. Perception is everything. The "basural" is enough to sustain the speaker. Why shouldnt it be like this for everyone?

A good question that probably has an answer based on the different levels of self imaging of people. The poem talks about true humility, I suppose.
