Phobia


Phobia

These four walls
are safe enough
to hold up
the world
if only this
world were
something other
than my fears.

Contigo era constante el deseo


Contigo era Constante el Deseo 


Ayer salí a anidar
Entre los buitres
Te había escogido
Pero tú no me habías
Elegido a mí

Troubled



Troubled
for W. H.

She sang
through a samurai
death mask;
angel stuck in the mud,
innards bleached,
drowned.
Blown off somewhere
by too much sun
and wind.

Burn


Burn


Lonely among
petals pale as death,
no hand to remove
the frost.   I slip out
of my skin into
another time when
there are no torments,
Adam by my side
an Aztec warrior
ready to flatter me
with a piece of
my enemy’s heart.
When I fall for his charm
no harm comes to me
as his salt melts
on my tongue
and I burn.

Swiftly


Swiftly


Here I am
thinking
it all went
so swiftly,
one day
seventeen,
next sixty-one
—what a word.
