The ocean is
the Lucifer of blue.
The sky fallen
for wanting to be light.

Poor ocean, damed
to endless movement,
who once stood still
in the firmament!

But love redeemed you
from your bitterness.
You bore pure Venus,
and your depths were virgin
and felt no pain.

— from “Ocean” by Federico Garcia Lorca

 

Full Moon Over The Sea of Cortez   Leave a comment

I had a paper moon. Stamped and certified. Mine was

a colonia moon, a barrio moon, a suburban moon. I

knew where I was, where I was supposed to be, where

I was allowed to go, and that was anywhere. We lived

the outhouse moon, the tortilla moon, the channel

12 bullfight Tijuana moon. And then we migrated 

north, like monarchs, following the light.

. . . My moon rose over tidy houses. 

— from the poem “Codex Luna” by Luis Alberto Urrea
