no one ever sings
at the notaría.
i can even forget
to breathe.
but out there
in the world,
in the dirty world,
an old man is humming
near the front of his store:
flo-res ar-ti-fi-ci-al-es

our cat
hesitates between us,
held aloft
by your stare and mine;
our cat
shudders between absolutes,
plenitude and desolation;
can you be called
honest
even if you cannot lie?

one more rebuke,
a sigh,
she settles in

we made friends
once
with a dog
named "guaro,"
dead
town in sunlight,
flooded
town with the big white house.
were they drinking guaro —
the grown-ups —
on the night
of the scorpion
in the bathroom?
while my little cousins
pierced their own ears,
"sanitized"
with coca-cola?
¿qué quieres tomar?

my cousin's photograph

a photo taken
by my cousin
it won a contest
we hung it on the wall today
a man trying to cross the street
in the rain

me and the dweez

screenshot (above) from a video call
with mom
starring dweez the cat.
"when are you going to get a job?"
yesterday,
we visited my grandmother
and her sisters at the home;
they are planning their escape daily now;
to go back to "the room"
everyone i know
is terrified
of losing
their memory.
"whose kid are you?"
