on the streets of love,

on the streets of love,
unevenness triggers growth,
keeping us balanced

in the middle of

in the middle of
monterrey, a dozen stones
waited for you to

come along, place them in balance,
transform them into meaning

shore, we are balancing rocks,
one for each prayer or

wish or anticipation
or joy, dad carried them all

every moment, a

near the end, there is

near the end, there is
always a balancing act –
perhaps on top of
some rubble of forgotten
memories, perhaps
on the dagger
of just one
memory

on a scale of walking

on a scale of walking
into traffic and
walking into the sea,
last night i
chose the sea,
and when i reached it,
you called me
out of the blue,
an accusatory tone
in your voice,
taking me back
to the days when
i’d arrive at my
childhood home
and not ring you up.
i was found out,
i leaned the
heaviness against you
so that i could
find a new
balance, and you
shifted so that you
could accommodate
the weight. i
wandered alongside,
instead of into,
though the sound of
the waves will always
compete with your voice
