10 Jan No Comments Aileen Ibardaloza-Cassinetto Issue 44, Poems

for Luisa Igloria

by Jim Pascual Agustin


Stone smooth as water,
make momentary bridges
of speed and trajectory.

Sky of multiplying stars,
allow eyes to trace
arcs and lines, give

life to myths and dreamt
histories. Nothing can stop
sand from glistening

on feet not yet numb
from icy fingers
of these Antarctic waters.

There will always be
something between us.
