    Amor

    you make me feel acolhida  hugging my knees tightly  as I cry touched by another’s love  acolhida. Colhida like a ripe fruit  before it meets the softened core. You speak the language of my childhood;  of the sweet smell of rotting mangoes. I would trade…

    Cloud Watching

    I used to watch the clouds move                                     towards me and                                                                        away.                                        Lead me through the day                                                                       My most loyal companions                  The secret  to seeing their steps               is to be very still                               and very quiet.                                                             I wanted to move with them…

  • Me at the corner

    Me at the corner

    Walls run towards each other                                      and meet in the middle, cut each other off. They reach into the room like a pillar, they carry floors and hide what is on the other side. I cross their path, walking by a little too closely. I pass by…

  • $5 bouquet

    $5 bouquet

    My flowers wilt after two weeks. Three stems are left in the vase, three stems left from a meadow. Some flowers lost their petals, and some dried up, even though I changed  the water very carefully every day and carefully cut the stems, I didn’t…
