By Raymundo Muñoz
It all hangs.
Swinging like a scythe.
So heavy, but
the lightest of the light don’t mind.
by what’s been laid down and driven upon.
Eyes for hands that ply and peel, filling nail beds
with earth that bends
a Rorschach test of pitch and chaos. And
a little push. Gives meaning.
(It’s a mean thing)
Born-again adoption (unfurl your love! —
There’s a brazen bull that wants to hide).
To take and give a beating. Queasy, pink, and tender
pale instruments of conquest or
Don’t look up.
You already know how this will end.
