Brown-eyed girl

A penny for your thoughts,
brown-eyed girl.
Can anyone grow wise
thinking only of the stars?
When shadows nestle in your hair,
becoming bent and crooked—
is that how wisdom begins?
What about the young boy
who loops himself around
the boa constrictor
and survives to tell the tale?
Will you be like him?
Will you have a tale to tell?
How will you begin?
A penny (that’s enough)
for your thoughts,
brown-eyed girl.

Mysteries

Virgin in disguise
Fábrica La Aurora, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


how a wise mother
weaves her children’s tomorrows
using threads of chance—
quotidian mysteries
falling from sensual hands
