Julio Was a Bad Animal

September 30, 2017


Have you seen

have you really seen

the snow 

the stars 

the plush steps of the breeze


Have you touched

have you really touched

the plate 

the bread 

the face of the woman you adore


Have you lived

like a blow to the head

the shock 

the gasp 

the fall 

the flight


Have you known

in every pore of your knowing skin

how your eyes 

your hands 

your sex 

your soft heart


must be thrown away

must be mourned away

must be invented once more all over again
