    Descriptive info: Jude.. DiPaolo.. To Poem #---5.. Helen Degen Cohen.. I wanted to lick you off the page.. It had been such a long time.. since.. Since the garden of chandeliers.. beguiled much, much, and more.. And the moonlight was not.. the man with the silver smile.. not his aftershave in the night.. not the skin of his early autumn, oh.. no.. Not the trophy, the flowers.. Was not any Baudelaire, oh.. And the days.. They were not.. enlightened for any love.. but you.. You were,.. yes you, the entwining.. limb, and I consentfully trapped.. in your stasis, the precisely measured.. (who had done this?) ribbons,.. aromatic.. You were perfectly arranged..  ...   playing with the heavenly fiddlesticks,.. Hera drawing ice-cream out of clouds,.. Hermes running with a basketful.. of Yeat's golden apples--.. margin to margin.. But there were no margins, only miles.. on a page, a single page.. Miles and minutes of you.. And.. what are words if you please?.. A rum torte, a seven-layer-cake,.. a pink squiggle of icing?.. All was angels, angels up the sleeve.. And how to do it again?.. Know which of a hundred ships.. brought in the rare spices, the auroras.. of taste? How impossible you were.. How much more like a morning, a sunrise,.. a someone at the door breaking.. into these ignorant fingers.. 27, 2002..

    Descriptive info: Liviana.. English translation to follow.. Johanny Vazquez Paz.. 1999.. Quisiera ser liviana como te.. perderme en el deseo de mi cuerpo.. sintiendo ansia y lujuria.. y poder mirar de frente al siguiente d�a.. los ojos de las bocas extranjeras.. que desguet gozosa sin amor.. Quisiera ser liviana y flotar.. sin mas preocupacion.. que mis necesidades.. deleitarme como te gozas.. un cuerpo nuevo cada noche.. en tus ancianas manos.. Pero soy pesada y me atan.. las historias de mi abuela,.. los consejos de mi madre,.. el orgullo de mi hermana.. iComo han cambiado los tiempos!.. Ayer yo era moderna y liberada.. hoy s�lo ni�a consentida.. de ideas anticuadas.. Y de verdad que quisiera ser.. aire ingr�vido no contaminado,.. espuma flotando en la ola,.. roc�o resbalando en la hoja.. Pero soy pesada monta�a.. cargada de ra�ces e historia.. atada a los prejuicios de mi  ...   and lust.. and boldly face the next day.. the eyes of a stranger's mouths.. sampled in pleasure without love.. I want to be lighthearted and float.. without any more care than my needs.. luxuriate the way you delight.. with a new being each night.. in your weathered hands.. But I am heavy and I am bound.. by my grandmother's stories,.. my mother's admonitions,.. my sister's pride.. How times have changed!.. Yesterday I was modern and liberated.. Today only a prissy girl.. with antiquated ideas!.. And in truth I wish I could be.. pure, uncontaminated air,.. foam floating on the wave,.. dew slipping off the leaf.. But I am a heavy mountain.. burdened with roots and history.. bound to my grandmother's prejudices,.. to my mother's beliefs,.. to my sister's experience.. I wish to be lighthearted like you,.. teach me to deceive my soul..

    Descriptive info: Origins.. Ixtacc huatl.. I.. Everything she lives is propelled.. by the momentum of memory and Mexico.. In the yellow house it began;.. on an iron bed draped in bleached muslin,.. Ana Maria in attendance, braided black hair.. at the nape of her neck, sure brown hands ribbed with veins.. Backdrop: a small square room,.. sky-blue flaking paint filled with the scent.. of rubbing alcohol, sunlight filtered.. through uneven blinds.. Small young woman on the bed,.. face flushed with effort, dark hair.. spread on the pillow.. Quiet  ...   or unwilling.. to cry or breathe, eyes shut tight,.. small fists batting air.. She preferred the floating cocoon;.. distant sounds murmuring, music.. all things muted, toned down.. III.. Years later, that same child.. becomes a woman who only senses absence.. Unfilled spaces call her attention on paper.. as do pauses between spoken words.. On her dresser, in a leather frame.. the face of a frightened child peers out.. captured in black and white,.. encased in plastic, a murky green,.. color of the Rio Bravo at twilight..
