Where I’m From – Inspired by George Ella Lyon

I’m from the father who poured his soul in the plaster

and pulverized his bones into the concrete of the steps and dripped his sweat and tears into every soup, every mixed drink, every daily special on his menu. Until he had become one with it. And would be forever lost without it.

My Perfect Disease

You are my HIV, my perfect disease.

My eventual downfall, the perpetual hum that slowly diffuses sweet poison into every scene we star in.

Mujer Misteriosa

Me has seducido

con Tus palabras salvajes
Y encendiste mi alma

con una locura insaciable.

Untouched

The will to endure will triumph
over the will to conflict.

Requiem of Desire

If you need propane, to light the fire,

conserve the desire, express without tire,

embrace the ire, but honor the supplier,

and feed when desired.

Cien

Esencia desnuda
Que derrite mis prejuicios
Y abandona sus deseos entre las huellas
Que dejaste cuando te fuiste.

Pre-writing Musings or Utter Nonsense

Mind the message for it is just a masquerade. Channel the child as you lift off the veil.

Are you in tune with him yet?

Does she yell for your breakthrough?

Listen…LISTEN, for the voice is faint, but clear.
