The Vietnam War was becoming more unpopular every day. It
had become an open and running sore in the American consciousness.
Its toxicity oozed into every facet of American life, and poisoned

Pa correrla cada vez que te desnudas:
cuando ya te quedas y te quitas la ropa,
cuando te despojas de la otra, la que te dobla,

cuando hay tormenta o triful... Read more of this blog post »

a word, perhaps,
or lavender dripping in the wind
or the eremite leaf
that tips the limb
and points conspicuously to Easter.

sting like medusae
unrooted by a murdering wave
and roll southward drowning
towards the leeching sand:
