Among faces-faceless-smiles-and-go-fuck-yourselves


I cannot forget the strong handshake I gave them
as I left them rootless at the coffee shop near that park

and among drowned memories neglected that I carry
grasshopper-reminders in the hotness-night

my body-oven wrapped in emptiness

says nothing as it is left without attention and unable to give it

my mind is a fan

it gets lost in the boom-disorder of that body lying

in the anxiety to return to the trapeze

where the future came sleepwalker
among faces-faceless-smiles-and-go-fuck-yourselves

Entre caras-descaradas-sonrisas-mentadas-de-madre...

No olvido el sacudón de mano que le di
al dejarle así sin raíces en aquel cafe cerca del parque

y otras ahogadas memorias descuidadas que cargo
grillos-recuerdos en las noches calurosas

mi cuerpo-calenton envuelto en vacío
no dice nada al quedar descuidado y sin poder cuidar

mi mente-abanico
se pierde en el boom-trastorno de aquel cadaver tendido

en la ansiedad de volver al trapecio
donde el futuro se dejo venir sonámbulo 
entre caras-descaradas-sonrisas-mentadas-de-madre

What you embrace...


To you I am
the waves 
I do not know

to you I am
in the cracks
picking the margins

to you I am
returning
strong, inside

to you I am 
the waves
in the cracks
returning

to you I am
I do not know 
picking the margins
strong, inside

After these signs... How do you continue reading a book?

Estoy otra vez

I am again

an act of payment to the hours

the plight must be local?
or beyond these
lines of the land

una vez más
arde y pasan-horas

y pronto traerán las pistolas
para hacernos recuerdos-amados

but for now aquí cerca
una imagen de la virgen
y cuatro libros colgados

y que bueno que ya
se fue la lluvia

pero no el letrero
que dice
rompeme-el-corazon

con este pain to
miss an illusion
for a week-minutes
and sometimes days

thinking it was him or him-or-him

but not in the blue-irvine
nor floridian-spanish

nor lover-of-dogs
nor i-just-barely-met you!’s

too many friends and
no-new-friends and
why-so-lazy-on-a-Monday?

Juan Gabriel
sounds about right-right-now

when I trace the backwards labyrinth
called you-know-love

and how it was
widely embraced
loving-learning

by those who taught me
the making

Wet-cat-in-the-rain

Sounds like it’s gonna rain machines
just when this felt home...
continued to be winter-a-crying-gray.


How could I
change that life?


Now somewhere around here
I’m biting into the awful...
I’ve been meaning to tell you...


there is this piano inside my head that
plays to semi-memories of
an old lover and with room for more.


Was I escaping this much?


Something within me
whistles imagining itself-mermaid,


but I said goodbye
near many moons and sunsets.


It all stayed behind
and I kept going-going,


climbing and crossing
to decipher the long-ago-song;


the message beneath the message,


wet-cat-in-the-rain.

Quiero saber de ti... / I want to know more about you...

Quiero saber de ti
eso pense por la mañana


y al caminar por la calle
entre mil ojos
me acordaba de los tuyos


los que conocí de noche
y me llevaron a ti


quiero que sepas
me da cometer errores
y con lo difícil de mi
otras manos sedientas se quedan


como aquel asombro del tiempo
me ayudas entre estas tierras


y evitó la nube gris
con esa nueva magia


entregaré todo
eludiré otros corazones


palmaré con riesgo

____________________


I want to know more about you
I thought that in the morning

and walking down the street
among a thousand eyes
I remembered yours

the ones I met at night
and took me to you

I want you to know
I make mistakes
and with the difficulty of me
other thirsty hands stay

like that wonder of time
you help me among these lands

I avoid the gray cloud
with this new magic

I will deliver everything
I will bypass other hearts

palmar with risk

With the education guesses and the implications undiscovered...

I’ve been putting off reading so much
since it is all intense and some heavy
shit so today
I needed a break


I’ve vented
and they were shaken
and I am too pero no tanto


I knew well that was gonna happen


didn’t you?


with education guesses
and the implications undiscovered
A.
B.
C.
D.
E. none of the above.


The so uninterested of
their ancestry,
the factual cruel reality,
only the myths and legacies of an
“It get’s better”


we’re gonna have to
homeschool our kids
for a few years


and our population
unprepared
since the neoliberals
sold away our reach


and the right
our hands.
