Cool Catfishes

Poem By Jose Ramon Sanchez

If we were fish resting
At the bottom of a pond
And you were walking by
Glancing into the dark waters
Where we rest afraid of the shadows
We’d laugh at how wavy and silly
You’d look and
You’d laugh right back,
dropp a stick
of dynamite into the pond
to get
your dinner tonight

Summer Moves

Warm summer air droops
As days shorten before the sun
The trees consume their sorrow
And prepare for wintery soup

You And Me

You are the tinola and the sabow
The adobo that floats the chicken
You are the eye that sees straight
The plum in the basket

Da Da Da

When you were 8 months
On this earth
Your da da das boomed
Like distant thunder,

Closing Clouds

You builder of worlds
You dreamer of dreams
You shaker of storms
You moderator of extremes
