Juan Pablo Mobili

Día de los Muertos
	What was that you wanted
	Bob Dylan

I am in the line for those who applied 
for early reincarnation, my hope is

that volunteering might afford me 
a less burdensome assignment.

It’s raining, and it's cold,
and the line has hardly moved.

I know I’m out of touch with the living
but eager to give flesh a second chance.

I miss those times when I hang 
dearly to my heartbeat.

Juan Pablo Mobili was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has been an adopted son of New York for many years.
