Free online and here. Translated into English as "Vater Pound" by Harry Polkinhorn in The Whole Island: Six Decades of Cuban Poetry, ed. Mark Weiss (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2009), pp. 462-469 (Spanish and English on facing pages). Second page. In an email to the translator, the poet wrote: Aside from the fact that it's at least sixteen years since I wrote "Vater Pound" and that I tend to forget very quickly the source of everything in a poem (when I'm writing it I know everything; when I'm finished, nothing), it's perhaps best if I tell you a couple of things about how I write. The objects in a poem are something like objects in a dream: they have no previous or subsequent existence. Which is to say that a poem is a world (or a slice of a world) in itself that retains only a distant resemblance to "reality" (or that order of things we call reality). Perhaps, for example, there is no painting by Rogier van der Weyden to which this line refers. And perhaps Gustav Holst's suite The Planets doesn't (or may not) end, as in the poem, with the pealing of bells. When I begin to write I have no idea how the poem is going to continue, and the confused and mistaken offer me a second chance. Only occasionally a strange scruple forces me to rectify some too obvious incoherence. But in dreams (as in jazz) there's no way to revise. The confused acquires a form, and it's done. It's not a mistake, it's something new. As to that emblematic "Rogier van der Weyden," I think I remember an apple thief in a tree, and a hunter watching him (hence the musket), but the truth is that at this moment I have no idea if such a painting even exists, and if it does, if it's by Rogier. It could just as easily be by Hieronymus, as you have noticed. What's not in the poem (what's not on its surface) exists nowhere. They're glimpses attracted by glimpses. Words attracted by words. Better, they are instances that arrive in the place where only what I call an invisible ceremony can be performed. The lianas, Pound with a musket, the possible painting by Rogier. Robin Goodfellow who is also a robin, the woods, ancient Celtic tales, etc. etc. etc. As the poem says, "shining symbols." But we can't do anything with them. We wander in a forest of symbols and can't find the key or the path. (And Pound, the surrogate father of contemporary poetry, is also like this). Because there is no key or path. We were lost before we set out. We think we see signs, but it's our own reflection or a spot of light. Something that attracts us as Pinocchio's classmates were attracted. There's no signified, no painting of Rogier's to shelter us, there's nothing at all. That's why the poem says "we are crazy goldsmiths, obsessed by a canticle." From this distance in time, I speak as a reader, because the moment of the poem can't be reproduced. And anyone can make of it what he can. (The Whole Island, p. 587).

Wes Davis (Cambridge: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2010). "In this century the American poet T. S. Eliot has been the most infamous distractor. He had a marvellous intelligence and wrote many interesting essays for specialists; but his poems were a mixture of really negative ideas illustrated by inadequate portraits of life, thought and humanity. His fellow American, Ezra Pound had a lot more positive energy and wrote a few terrific poems, although he turned out to be crazy. What turned me against them both was that they seemed to have muddied the mainstream with aestheticism and over-intellectuality. Their personal ambitions, to be famous and dominate literary life almost pushed poetry beyond it's normal function of entertaining, moving and inspiring the common reader, and made it hard for solid practitioners like myself to function. They were both punished in their own lives by whatever sicknesses drove them. My poem 'Exploration in the Arts' tries to bring them in to the mainstream, castigate them and forgive them."
