The Writing of David Andrés Alíx

I understand that I do not understand

Misplaced

I understand that
It’s not mine to ask
On your behalf

There are those
Entrusted

So then I ask
On theirs
Though it’s not
My place

Something Good

May what she receives
Be the furthest thing
Beyond her wildest dreams

A pristine white beach
A sublime blue sky
Turquoise clear waters

All with a tidy slice
Of Lemon Merangue pie

Unable to put into words

Your Stewards

image

My grandfather loved
Mopar Muscle
And yours the Purple
Corn Cockle
And when they could
No longer be their
Steward they handed
Over their care
To the deemed
Responsible

Upon seeing that
Their prizes never
Showed such splendor
Their joy was indeed great
And when I see your
Spirit as pristine as it
Has been of late
My elation over your
Joy to their joy
I can relate

What Color Am I?

image

When my heart asserts
Certain sentiment
What color am I?
The color of a lie?

My walls have been
Lined with sugar plums
And pineapples
In preparation for
Your welcoming

Bowl of Roses

Bowl of roses
Attracts all noses
While one poses
The other sleeps

Life hits my heart
Causing it to beat

Myopia

image

Squinters in the winters
Sun shown on snow slopes

Squinters in the summers
Are Ray Bans on nose? nope

Squinters in my home
My face unable to scope

Contacts left to soak
In their case by the soap

Head High Eyes Shine

image

Do not tremble
Do not fright
Things can turn
To good overnight
Head high my brother
Eyes shine my sister
Together you will be
Made the victor

Follow The Leader

I cannot chalk
Up to coincidence
That crosswalk
Holding most precious
Pedestrians in lock
Step with the clock
On time
To learn how to play
Follow the Leader

Their
Game faces state
It’s far from a game
