Dirigir

July 17, 2013 in Poetry by rkennedy


La manera en la que mi interés
en su beso
imaginario

esta secretamente dirigido
a ti.

*

Carentes de intención

dientes de hiedra
montan los postes
que sostienen la carretera.

Seria posible decir
que cada hoja

circunscribe esperanza

o que cada hoja,
fastidiosamente llegando
a un punto,

sugiere un temor
a lo desconocido.

*

Estas botas de tacón alto,
brillantes, amarradas

(cada hoja)

dirigida a ti
