ZASTERLE

Javier Coy. Touching Extremes. La Laguna: Zasterle Press, 1992

The Hardness of the Word

 My God, the hardness
of the word!
And suddenly tonight
the thinness of my blood
the thickness of the blood
gets shot to smithereens
when less expected
by the flood
which disseminates itself
in orchards and in beaches
in one-sided discussions
which my arguments
always win
of course.
There is something
at least
where I win
after all.
