A Yearning

Posted by arley sanchez on January 10, 2013 at 12:50 PM Comments comments (1)




Look in my eyes, deeply,

I have control now.

I love you like myself,

but I have come close to extinction

so many times and now again.

She calls and I am here,

Never Said I was Pablo Cruise

Posted by arley sanchez on July 8, 2011 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I ramble beat and anxious,

skitter like a leaf over lava rock,

a sweet city woman sings on the radio

and promises she'll wait for me.

So long ago cruising Mexico with Pablo;

Desire inflames spangled lips,

red pumps stir sparks

on a catwalk windy with stars,

a galaxy dazzled by black nylon

Dimming of Day

Posted by arley sanchez on June 6, 2011 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

September's wildflowers covet the stroke

of an indifferent benevolence,

snapdragons wink heavy with intrigue,

and in the dimming of the day,

I miss your touch, your dreams, your love.

When He Slit My Throat ...

Posted by arley sanchez on May 23, 2011 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

When he slit my throat, my life

bubbled away in blood

seeping into dirt, releasing

my soul, bringing me back

to this morning when my brother

Sleepless night, dreams of Matanza morning

snip at the darkness where the terror walks,

but today it seems held at bay,

outside in the cold iron morning, my family

Winter's Rose 


They pray and ask me to help, in God’s name.

They ask me for proof,

I must find roses in winter's snow.

From Behind Bars

Posted by arley sanchez on April 28, 2011 at 12:55 PM Comments comments (0)

From behind bars, they call out like cats,

time frozen on clown face clocks striking midnight.

When the lights go out, nightmares begin,

out of cities, out of God’s pure country,

out of ghost towns, out of neon’s gli...

In the viewfinder of your camera, a blossom quivers,

unsure of your love or your intentions,

not the sincerity of your look,

nor the mystery of your art,

will soothe its fear,
