The Writing of David Andrés Alíx

I understand that I do not understand

Unentitled

I do not want to be that way

Up till the present day

I have been good just

To make your head shake

Mistaking the same mistakes

Over and over again

You loved me so I learned love

You were loyal to me so I learned

Loyalty 

It was never due to me

Should I be out on the street

Destitute in poverty

You would still deserve 

The very best of me

Might I never feel entitled

To indulge my sensories

Because of some good deed

Improperly percived, carried

Out by my hands,

By my imperfect eyes

Good Measure

image

Please teach me
To accept what
You give and
What you do not give
Help me to see
Face value
Not to philosophize
Not to read between
Lines
Because the measure
You measure out
Is always the perfect
Amount

Dawn

Yesterday we walked
Scurvy Valley and
The Leper Colony

I with my children
By my side

And you with a
New Sunrise

Keeping Silence

image

I opened my mouth when you intended
My silence
I caught myself and tried to comply
I am learning to take nothing
Should that be in the offing
Teach me how to take something
When that is what you supply

Small

When you arrive
At the fact
That compared
To anything you
Face you are small

Then you will
Arrive at the
Strategic
Advantage
To conquer all

Your Wife

Together for
Eternal life

Invaluable

Temporarily
For a brief
Moment in time
May we be a
Worthless thing
To one another’s
Eyes

Feast of Oranges

image

I lit out to Scurvy Valley this morning
With my children by my side
Inviting to the Feast of Oranges
All the nutrient deprived

I remember like it was
Yesterday, about a year ago
Canvassing those alleyways
You as family lessened the blow

Emptied

image

Liquid life
Leaked out
Protesting
Limb

Nothing left
To fill me up
Again

Vague

image

I am vague
Today and
Yesterday
Because
My mind
Is plagued

So if unsure
Where you
Stand
Know you
Are likely
Loved
