Bus Route Number 20

Yet another early morning bus ride

Six inch heels and noir dress

Feels out of place and almost ridiculous

Standing on the corner

Looking down the street

for the number 20.

My route day in and day out.

Same bus down town, same bus up town.

Never quite feels the same at all.


she stops,

Looks at me and laughs

“What you doing under the STOP sign girl?”


Bus all to myself.

Until the…

addictions are very personal tragedies

When Etta sings

I let go

into my unapologetic


That false feeling

That I know you,

that you know



Addictions do not make sense,

They have no reason.

Who could care what day it is,

who loves me,

or who I hold.


My body is obsessed with the thrill

Of the fantasy.


The grip

I feel

when I think I could lock myself up in a glass…

De Las Que No Temen Nada

De todo lo que puedes ofrecerme...

Dame una guitarra.

Dame una cancion.

Te puedes quedar con todo lo demas.

 Ese temor que te acompaña, en el amor,  no tiene lugar.

En esta vida

una mujer tiene que ser


con cada paso.

Hay demasiados modos de perder

todo lo que amamos.

La Muerte, el sol, y el trabjo

exigen  muy caro precio

a nuestra piel.

Me roban la juventud

que me dio la belleza…

Tengo mi alma hecha ceniza 

Espeso lodo de volcan

Gris oscuro 

Como el gato de mi casa.

Cruel y arrogante ceniza 

Que se atasca en mi garganta y me enciega.

Siento el vientre lleno de esta.

Quema y se revuelve  con mi amargura 

Atole agrio.

Nada como aquel que prepara mi abuelita.

Entre mas arrebato con mis brazos cansados 

mas ondo me siento undirme.

Estancada  en este barro.

"dicen que de barro…

Only he knows the right song to play.

He has music.

A weapon I can’t fight.

Difficult to find a defensive stance

when the assault is enveloping in just the right key and beat.

The song plays on, and beautiful wicked thing that I am,

I stay coiled in my skin,

and sway back and forth.

You can’t get angry,

when he is not the one playing with your soul.

The song played.
