Santa María

santa_maria_a

Your not as enthused about your forearm tattoo, as when you first got it

The Niña?

The Pinta?

The Santa María?

You said, “Oh…no it’s just a ship”, as if the bottom dropped out of your heart

You didn’t lay blame as your eyes did get rounder, but if I ventured a guess, those masts were inked when you thought you had arrived at your home

Since then you did lift anchor still looking for something you lost or have never discovered

Perhaps you might find it off the coast of Haiti

Mecedora

Vi una mecedora hecho de caoba en una mueblería en San Pedro de Macoris y pense en ti

Cómo me uviera gustado entregartela para que estaría cuando llegaría tu nuevo chichí

La tela era color naranja y el espaldar una maya de paja delicada y fina hecho para una reina y me sonreí

Imaginandote consolando la criatura meciendo un sueño sereno mientras pensaba en los colibri

Vi una mecedora heco de caoba en una mueblería en San Pedro de Macoris

Cuánto me uviera gustado despachar una carga para mandarla hacia ti
