Ode to the Book

Stumbled upon this piece of poetry, unadultrated, something totally raw, like fresh orange juice, like the fresh kill of a tiger.

This poet seems worth exploring.

I'm on my way
with dust in my shoes
free of mythology:
send books back to their shelves,
I'm going down into the streets.
I learned about life
from life itself.

- Pablo Neruda
