sea song

you were carried by wind

sail. marcation written in

ocean. arrival imprints on

sand. destination grows

into departure. word spat

history. her name was

gloria. her favorite singer was

lola. your father arrived

by wind sail. his name crossed

the river and is on the other

side. their name was jesús.

the first the second then the

last. their favorite memory was

the one around your shoulder

next to your grandmother

bartola. where between is now

here. then is now never.

here now nowhere. his name

is somewhere on paper.

your name somewhere on paper.
