Cantos For the Dead

La verdadera sonrisa del agua", de Héctor Valdivia. acrílico s/masonite 2014 colección particular

My garden feasts upon detritus
left behind.
outcasts mold their companions
from fractured bones and algae 

to walk among the dead,
their dreams a foretelling
of sunsets decried
by voices blistered.

growing roots through trees,
birds flutter, wings made of glass,
songs muted on pan pipe drifts.

Were it not so quiet,
i would build fences,
but the dead seldom speak,
they are busy with each other.
