Poem in Text

 

To Angel Flores of Sweetwater, Texas .  A father threw his 4-year-old boy from his car, in the dessert along a West Texas highway. The injured boy spent several hours alone in the dark. A passing motorist picked him up, he was marred by over 500 cactus thorns. His father, when caught later, said God told him to leave the boy.

Small child hide

Fly this way

Let me catch you

Niño pequeño

Little boy

 

Se esconden en el miedo

Small one, hide in fear

Beneath the cactus

and a midnight sky

You are safer with the wolves

 

The desert sand burries you

Cubrir, mi alma los ojos azules

Cover, my blue eyed soul

The thorns pain stiffens you

Lifes visions

Haunt you

Ha mentido

 

 

He has lied

 

Que no era

un padre

That was not a parent,a father

He was not given , he stole

No father knows he

You are free

Unleashed

Cast to the feral city streets

Arms . limbs , hearts

Hands , lips, tears

Confuse you with their touch

 

Piel

Hide

 

Here in sleep

A new mother sings for you

Only for you

La nación de pecadores nos lleva a perdonar

A nation of sinners begs your forgivness

They lost  you in  their cinematic ignorance

Where you are not real

 

They see you now

 

Desde arriba prometo vienen

Down from above come new promises

Desde arriba vienen las nuevas verdades

Down from above come new truths

 

   Mintió

  He lied ,

del Niño ,  He lied
