Death Of A Vulture

Poem By Karen Esperanza

He spends his life,
in a constant watch.
We watch him too,
we watch him stalk.

Those acquainted with the ground,
watch those acquainted with the sky,
we wonder if what we see is a lie.
How can a vulture fly that high?
His wingspan lies, his wingspan lies!

Swooping low,
we see him close,
we cut off his deceit.
Inside our minds,
he is dying now,
but still our rot, he eats.

Icarus And Friends

We are the ones
who fly too close to the sun,
with grace and such powerful ease.

April 2nd

I want desire
By the fire
Of a setting sun


Sometimes I like to think that,
We possess certain instincts.
That at birth we keep ancestral knowledge.
Because then our bones could not deceive us,

Rain; A Memory.

You are biking and it begins to rain.
In fact, it begins to pour,
and no car is willing to spare a moments time
and let you pass

Death By Nostalgia

Down, Down, Down,
We go down the same road we've always driven on
Down to the familiar place where dreams live on


Whales in the skies,
please don't tell me lies,
I was always afraid
of your deep blue seas.
