1. you know me?
    then explain
    the wall.
    I’d like to know 
    why I can’t climb it;
    why I can’t cross.
    The other side,
    I’ve been told,
    is great to go to.
    I seem to be stuck. 
    you know me. right?
    then, explain!
    go on! 


  2. play.

    Whoever gave you words 
    did not mean for you to throw them.
    Words are not stones; 
    if you are planning to hurt, 
    be thoughtful about each letter.


  3. Not precisely a good thing

    I think I’ll explode 
    I’ll explode
    into hundreds of words 
    millions of words
    your eyes won’t want to read
    but you’ll read
    since each will be inspired
    inspired by your being


  4. 2014-2

    if your eyes follow mine
    find a way to divert their sight
    look at the flowers, look at the ocean, look at the plants
    they can feed you, surprise you, wash you anew 
    my eyes however, they can’t.

  5. Guatemalan flavours. 
    stews and sofritos to feed our souls. 

  6. Kalimoxtos at Antigua Guatemala. 

    perfect afternoon. 


  7. 2014-1

    one day mother finally asked 
    what were her son’s reasons
    to wearing cowboy pjs
    to what her son replied

    Mom, I can see my dreams 
    most of the times I wanna keep them
    so I throw my lace to catch them 
    and I pull hard ‘til my hand can reach them


  8. Finding passion

    High cealing
    Cold floor
    Narrow space
    They all evaporate
    Into black haze
    Floating appears
    a blue flame
    It calls his name
    He knows he’s safe


  9. if rain starts falling 
    I hope it falls for you
    allowing every droplet 
    to get some of your perfume
    then each one 
    impregnated with your aroma
    will start a journey
    from your skin
    to the clouds blocking my sky
    if rain starts falling 
    then you’ll be falling too. 


  10. Live.

    The door is big enough 
    for you and your suitcase
    for you and your suitcase 
    a journey awaits 

    The road is long enough
    for you and your suitcase 
    your suitcase needs to know
    how life can wear it down

    at the end of the road
    you and your suitcase 
    will find yourselves at home 
    and you won’t have to wonder
    where you are coming from

    you and your suitcase will know


  11. When will you ever understand?

    coming in 
    flipping things over
    not coming back 
    will you ever understand
         it is not an strategy 
         it is torture 


  12. on food and feelings

    eating wild rice as his memories torment him 
    eating wild rice as he tries not to remember 
    he remembers how you fed him everything
    except for the wild rice that he deeply craved 


  13. Chef

    it is the world his pan
    there he can see 
    from dusk to dawn
    from light fresh colours
    to the golden browns
    when dinner’s served
    we all drop our jaws 
    nothing’s burnt
    not a thing goes undone
    pasta al dente
    veggies crunch 
    it is the world his pan
    He is a Chef

    the greatest one.


  14. Very Berry Breakfast

    where’s the crush
    of my flakes? 
    the heaviness of cream
    made a soggy mess
    as a telescope 
    I use a straw
    I notice how 
    my pancake man has evolved 
    from bearing emerald eyes 
    and a banana smile 
    to a distant blue look 
    and a burnt bacon blank expression 
    it is a very berry breakfast 
    and berries haven’t been in season 
    for long.


  15. Where do you rest your head?

    It is not mine
    the beat you’re hearing
    as you press your ear
    against that clean shaved chest.
    Can you hear the difference?
