Sacred Datura As Teacher


The trumpets blow
In the rite of passage
Near the desert stream

White and lavender-tinted
Colors known to the Shaman
To purity the soul

Datura is the sacred
In Carlos Castaneda’s
Supernormal perceptual state

Real or imagined
Around the Sonoran
Mountains and desert

Having a chance encounter
With a mushroom hunter
Influenced by diablero

The journey begins
In the rituals of Datura
Taking flight as a crow

Opening the doors
Wide into the night
Welcoming the duende

Freeing the poet
Of habitual trains of thought
Bringing love and understanding

Enhanced by the occasional
Encounter with black coyote
Ensuring the diablo’s existence
