I still love Michael Corleone, but this week is all about poetry.
Alone and silent
Impressions: Free jackets are always navy blue. A bag of Takis and a bottle of apple Mirinda on the circular table in the waiting room. A mexicano couple pulling shredded pork from a makeshift bowl of foil and rolling the strips into corn tortillas.
- “Aquí No Más”
Someone who loved the cracks
in him, tried to seal
them with spit and masa, could have
sewed the fissures with her hair
- “For Grandpa”
It seems there are papers to sign.
It is not so simple to end a life.
