Valentine's Day, Isla Negra

I asked Garcia Lorca out
We met at two
before our brows
could cast a shadow
              and
                            we
                   let
                            our
             feet
                  braid
                            their
               way
                       down
            into
                           Neruda's 
            mausoleum,

where we mocked the audio guides
humming blah blahs in the ears of devotees and tourists
as I ran snail trails on the lips
of dusty flower vases
and Federico waited by the pipes. 96 palabras más

Poetry

Come With Me, I Said, And No One Knew (VII)

Come with me, I said, and no one knew
where, or how my pain throbbed,
no carnations or barcaroles for me,
only a wound that love had opened.

There he sits,

reading in that drudgingly dim and macabrely monochromatic light. 107 palabras más
