Dance-poem

There’s a unique dance one
has with new books.
It’s always the same
tentative.
you read a few pages
unsure.
Perhaps the story isn’t gripping.
I’ll give it a few more turns.
If the book is good
I dive in.
If not, I put it down
and move to the next—
Can I cut in?
and continue to dance.

Observations Through A Stained Glass

If I were to write a book of poems— I’d call it,

“Observations Through A Stained Glass.”

Those who know, would understand its about my Andalusian past.
