Poems By Tatiana Rodeiro


The season for dying bloomed late this year

The season for dying bloomed late this year,
as though waiting for me,
with its fiery crescendo shrouded behind a canopy of black birds.
Breathe in the crisp cindery isolation
of the cold side of the window
where the echoes of children pass forbidden as the clouds.

What was it you really spoke of
in your proper and proud mechanical rant on fluorescent light bulbs;
is it the humility of hellos, goodbyes, and loving words too painful to speak?

Beneath our differences and distances
toils the blood of all
ceasing unto rebirth with every pulse
from the universal heart
mummified in bandages of suffering.
Come meet me beyond this masquerade of time and space.
