Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Amada

Inteligente 
soothes wounds
tonta scraped raw.

Competente 
erases bruises
inútil tattooed black.

Bonita
covers graffiti
gorda vandalized ugly.

Insultos leave injurious
wounds -- lies dressed
up like truth.

My beloved, crooned,
mi amada, seen in the
twinkle of loving eyes --
may take away the taint --
but stains and scars remain
proving how a woman
survives until she thrives.





For my new friend. She shines.
