Cinco Poemas de Amor

Between January 1st and March 28th of 2018 I lived in Buenos Aires, danced the tango daily and nightly, and nurtured a divine love affair with a professional tanguero.

Many times in those months I teased about the poetry he inspired in me. In the intro to this collection I reference these "debts" I promised to write. While those specific poems still remain unwritten, in my final days before leaving the city, my love-soaked hands wrung out these five into a little notebook.

Esto es esa libretita:

Intro

I owe you 5 poems:

1. "La Plenitud de Los Tiempos"

2. "Antonio y Margarita" (una historia)

3. "Tu Interior (Un Espacio)"

4. [Algo sobre sonrisas]

5. "Pretty the sun in your face"

I want to write them all.

This is just a start.

1.

Quiero escribirlos todos

y llenar libros numerosos;

Quiero crear una obra

maestra de amor

muy

muy

hermosa.

Y quizás

lo haré.

Quizás

lo haremos

juntos.

Quizás

hay un futuro

donde escribimos

esas páginas,

esa poesía

viviente

que requieren

cuatro manos

para ser.

Esas historias

perfectas

de esos personajes

perfectos

que no solo pueden

contarles,

pero existen

para vivirles.
