The poet shows us the fetal and killer potential o things usually seen as harmless , sweet,and innocent. The compesino ( farmer)is the speaker in the poem.
A compesino looked at the air and told me : it’s not the wind or the noise or the water . It’s the mangos ,avodoces and bananas . The farmer believes that the most beautiful sweet things can be the most dangerous..
The Campesino says that the society lives in the fear of the fatal winds and terrorising sounds of hurricanes. But these small things are also to be feared. They can be killer fruits. So he tells not to worry about the noise, wind and water but of mangoes, avocados and plantains. One should not take the outward appearances for granted for they may be deceptive.
