it’s not always easy

Eyes Greatest Revolution

The iris
expands
way beyond
the circumference of light itself
that stare you give me
makes my skin
rockhard reptilian
immersion is your talent
deluge as dissatisfaction
till I drown from inertia
your heart is a fish
in the reddest sea
my bait is saline love
your iris is a flying saucer
abducting my hope
nothingness is two feet away
but I’m afraid to look
in this sad world of ours
eyes should have been
history’s greatest revolution.

One thought on “it’s not always easy

  1. how beautiful pablo are these lines reminiscent of the post-modernist poets! i like these lines the best “your heart is a fish
    in the reddest sea
    my bait is saline love” and “but I’m afraid to look
    in this sad world of ours
    eyes should have been
    history’s greatest revolution”
