The Death of Cool Hand Luke

incarnated in the circumstance
among the living carcasses of being
already dead and dying
despaired of changing what is found
arising and saying “No”
a novelty that twists in time
only half digested in the craw
spoken of in guarded whispers
remembered in the darkened corners
where space reserves exceptions
impacted dreams
a word so beautiful

Diego Santiago


HUESOS
I've been singing o'er the bones
trying to coax them back to life
so the cycle can continue
so the power can be drawn
from the never-ending circle
where the woman wild within me
waits to lead me there beyond
for where she goes I'll follow
(though the predator o'ertake me)
with her senses at my calling
I'll o'ercome again and show
a path of light for those beside me
over here and and down below
still her spirit now will guide me
where, believe me, I shall go
as the bones which lie before me
once my body did surround
and through nature's grace and bounty
may again there dance around
I'm just a woman in transition
incubating for the Show
calling songs from deep inside me
so my soul can cast its glow
Singing now this call to raise you
loved bones, solid relics of my pasts
ere the darkness doth return here
ending dreams of peace which lasts
Though you shake your head and doubt me
I'll not rest until they're cast
and La Loba runs beside me
enjoining me to run as fast.
