Poemas de España: And


i was a prodigy
now i am god
of the apple trees
but the peach trees
are coming up
saw one growing in the middle
of the highway yesterday

rain for 10 minutes
better think quick
better drink sips
quick enough taste it

next dimension
but same extra-terrestial sail boat

you know my sympathy
chose apathy as a best friend
great pair
less tears like that
and spears like that
and beers like that
and years like that

hope you kept at least
one teddy bear
for the camp gets colder
in the summer
for memories of lost
sneak up on you
at la playa

who said life was asi asi
it´s fuego
with extra matches
extra snacks
in extra packs
for extra smiles
hope the tilde doesn´t keep you
too long

hope the song you sing
isn´t too long

i hope the time we spend isn´t too vain
what a shame
back to fat water bottles
and even doper alley hoops

the streets are paved with
lemon juice
so hope you brought a salmon
and a sugar jar
and by far the best way to swim
is to close your eyes
and float on cloud nine
in your best pair of galoshes

no matter how you get there
it´s the journey that keeps you breathing
grandma knows how they made you

it´s only the beginning
of time

so don´t sign just yet

gone napping sign
post it

like take two

take three more sips
that´s it
you´re done
quick walk home
long mind trance

like you´ver never known the word


they blame Mary
but she´s laid up right now
sun bathing in the Canarias

they say judgment is for those who can
but who made the sand

land on that

That was heavy comments you made, deep, while thought out, intelligent comments. Keep on making people think and allow yourself to grow.

that shit was dope..."god of the apple trees" that line. i just can't see apples in the same light since you. they're all some shade of brown to me.

Oh and the "judgment for those who can..."

Joce, you're amazing (until I find a word worthy of your description.)
