I left the South Bronx to come to the West. I found a mountain, a brave and daring man, and a series of injured and abandoned pets. I was selected as Poet Laureate (Montanta) and traveled the state on a Greyhound bus. Poetry has been my life since I can remember. I am currently finishing my sixth book of poetry.

The man in the Mexican Restaurant had your build.
Your haircut, shoulders, rib cage and behind.
You, easy. From the back, in a minute.
My body, turncoat, began agitating.
Warm, welcoming sensation.
Cling peaches in heavy syrup.
Entirely consumed by you.
Until, as mystery will,
he turned his head to reveal
a stranger. The wrong man.
he could have stood still
with his back to me
Just like you.
