For My Mother

Miss the laughs we shared as you tucked me into bed after my shoulder replacements in your riverside cryogenic spare bedroom – where we suspect Walt Disney may be being preserved – Stay warm, in every way, Ma ūüôā Better impact on the link everyone ~

A Kiss

David Tomas Martinez

About This Poem

‚ÄúThis poem explores a Heraclitean idea of love, showing how, in the end, we often miss some of the most mundane things about the person lost, such as a kiss. This poem is an attempt to wiggle my toes in the stream of that kiss.‚ÄĚ
