Three Poems

Golden
& blue eyed / what
I cld. not / now to perceive /

'childlike' the equanimity.

the moment
                              of

LOSS /
                                loving you

in my infant heart /

Pedro González, 2003

The
         source of my invisibility

                                                    is

                                                        the taste buds

          apple, orange, clove

if you are below the equator

tamarind, miraposa, papaya

if you are above the galaxy

     neon atomic particles
         guide you beyond

Sargoza, 2004

Granada

Above
Granada, the acid
air / still, reeks of
Moorish intention / while

above NYC, the radio-
acticity is hidden fr. view / above
Seville, LSD creates the
havoc we once
celebrated,
while
on e. 9th street,
Danny takes photos of
the chem trails,

the
genocidal,
spirit, that
prevailed on the
battlefield now prevails
in the medicine cabinet, O you
who poison & obscure, look to
Granada for comfort, you
who turn the air to
poison who tell
me free water
is
      a
                   crime.

NYC, 5.19.2009
