In a smoky room, Where poets gather
Thoughts become, Words like flowing water
There I met the lovely Ajolote

Through the glass, Darkly I see you
Another world, Where I might be you

Something lost, Draws us together
Now, I’ve found my lovely Ajolote

Aztec salamander’s obsessive gaze
Piercing golden eyes burn through the haze
Aztec salamander’s obsessive gaze
Piercing golden eyes burn through the haze

In you, another way of seeing
You are the essence of my being

Mysterious, Aquatic marvel,
Gills and tail, forever larval
Have you seen the lovely Ajolote?

Through the glass, Darkly I see you
Another world, Where I might be you

To the mountains climb, Lake Xochimilco
There you’ll find the lovely Ajolote

Aztec salamander’s obsessive gaze
Piercing golden eyes burn through the haze
Aztec salamander’s obsessive gaze
Piercing golden eyes burn through the haze

In you, another way of seeing
You are the essence of my being

In a smoky room, Where poets gather
Thoughts become, Words like flowing water
I write a poem to Ajolote
