THE SUBURBAN ROMANTIC
Coma Berenices 

Un manojo de pelo
en la mesa camilla.
La luz sentada en el pretil
busca un transporte,
luz azulada,
ofrenda fría a Afrodita.

En la mesa camilla
hay una ofrenda, aún hay luz.
Callado
es el resplandor de tu cabello, Berenice,
callado el viaje de los muertos
al otro lado del cristal.
