An international online magazine that publishes Surrealist poetry in English.
The colours bled as Dali
slow-wound the season.
Sun is recalled ever shining
except on hallowed eves.
You held dear those trees
that were easy to climb
and evenings that lingered
to whisper in leaves.
Only hints of edge sliced the air
when futures were near
and the ground abounded
under a moon, burst with fruit.
Flop Till You Fly
A wooder floater dot or ozone ladybug
flying on a cold thin line
leaves no trail
on my noon blue.
I have a digital dog; his nose and loyalty are zenithal.
He has four ears and floppy paws. His tale is short,
best traced in one dimension in ungrounded sky.
Beauties are in the brains of the beholders.
Guadalajara cooked at 44 degrees C,
hottest day on record the day after
we drank rum while ancient 4 inch
cucarachas arrayed window screens.
What ever happened to three pink lions
that never would arrive in Manzanillo,
or were never even born in Tlaquepaque,
or perished in the typhoon that tossed
a grand yacht upon Las Hadas beach?
We fished next day and a storm strayed
marlin escaped. Years later Casa Isabel
was mauled in a mud slide. All gone now
as is my friend; a man of manners, humor,
wisdom, hospitality, and missed things...
like lost lions
