Cold Fire

– for Iram Hernandez

Once again, we find

ourselves under the

anarchy of starlight

while our dreams get

caught in the tangled

dance of branches.

Drinking glasses filled

to the rim with

Bacardi & Diet Coke.

A drink to calm the

nerves, to straighten

out our crooked smiles.

You mentioned Jesus

hanging like a red lantern

in the window
