los que viven en la arena

Recommended Posts

and i know that angels draped in gossamer
have a tendency of sticking around,
if only on barberry and milk thistle
and cactus standing guard across

not-quite-prairie and dust dervish,
flat sea to intermittent, rocky island.

and i know that angels draped in gossamer
have a tendency of sticking around,
if only on earthly tethers and human baggage
and stubborn canine standing guard behind

guiding hand and escape attempts,
stoic tin routine to buzzing vulture wings.
 

 

Author's Note: another ekphrastic poem for class, this one done in a 10-minute free write and unedited. picture inspiration was a photo from mexican artist Graciela Iturbide's collection 'los que viven en la arena' (those who live in the sand).
