Digby Beaumont, Federico Garcia Lorca, 2021, pen and ink on paper, 9 x 5 inches

Behind shimmying glass
a glimpse. Enough.
You haven’t eaten
in some time.
Nor have you drunk
from the frozen stream
smashing a hole
sucking water through
your sturdy pipe.

Arid plains informed you.
A birthplace of
tightly pressed
sun baked houses
pale colored like rocks.

Taking the harbor, slowly,
glare oiling perception
created snowy hills;
disrupting synapses.

You’ve returned to ice.
A century or many gone past;
adore the illusion.
You won’t remember me,
regard as little consequence.
