Denunciation

Might I hold on fast, as long as the denunciation lasts

This familiar pain, which has become a healing rain

Might I not run ahead, lest I hang my head in dread

I must remain a helpless child, and remain undefiled

May you take my heart apart, and reform a work of art

One that will make you smile, causing you to want to walk a mile

With this child ashamed, awaiting your perfect, peaceful reign

To hold gift in hand, a true friendship in a good land

Might I hold on fast, as long as the denunciation lasts

There was a man

In need of

A heart transplant

No matter the times

He applied

His candidacy 

Was always rejected

His risk factors 

Were too many

Do you smoke?

Yes

Do you exercise?

No

What is your diet?

Cake and Ice Cream

So he never made the 

List

But he knew even better

Than the Doctors

How urgently he needed 

A new heart

So he lost weight

stopped smoking

Started the elliptical

And his wait

Was shortened 

He was put 

At the top of the

Eligible Recipient List

And he has hope

While he also hopes

It’s not too late

La Perla de Cádiz

perla

La Perla de Cádiz es la dueña

De un ritmo preciso

Es dueña de un Duende sublime

Cuando mira al tocaor

Cómo si se le importara

Desinteresada

Sus ojos mira las esquinas

Del salon y dicen que

Están repugnados

Con el brusco sonido cual

Emana hacia ella

El inmutable galán sigue

Con sus desgarros

Y ella sigue en su desdén

Pero con los palmeros

Siempre se sonríe

Con aprobación

Solo cuando su voz se desgarra

Al igual que la guitarra

Asi sí se presta a reconocer

El que la persigue con sus

Tocadas como un loco

Se ríe, pero como mueve

Su melena, transmite el decir

“¡Que No!”

Mientras él echa su pecho

Pa lante y erige su cuello

Como el orgulloso león

De la selva

Pero en corto tiempo

Abaja de nuevo su cabeza

Porque La Perla es la única

Que reina
