réquiem para un copo de nieve

–11 de diciembre de 2020–
springfield, oh

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

ráfagas invernales acunaron tu caída
susurrando un adiós de eterna despedida
lo innecesario quedó en silencio, sin más…
lo que fuiste y lo que eres, serás…
¿cómo es posible que la nieve muera?
que un copo cierre sus ojos y para siempre duerma.
destino que no pude prevenir, no tuve fuerza.

Copo de Mis Diciembres,

pensé que te tendría siempre,
pero te derretiste al caer al suelo
y me arrojaste al lago de memorias olvidadas
sin la esperanza de tu existencia –en pleno duelo.

p.d.

no te olvidaré ¡jamás! …aun en esta vida desolada.


réquiem para un copo de nieve será publicado en un libro de poemas e historias titulado Réquiem en abril del año 2021–


Poem… requiem for a snowflake

requiem for a snowflake

–december 9, 2020–
springfield, oh
by Luis S. González-Acevedo

winter winds cradled your last descent
falling whispers sang goodbye
all that wasn’t necessary was not said…
who would’ve thought snowflakes could die?
who could’ve known they’d close their eyes in bed?
a fate I did not have the power to prevent.

December Snowflake,
you melted on arrival
i vanished to the forgotten lake
of memories, without the hope of your survival.

p.s.
i shall not forget you –ever– in my abyss of heartache.


requiem for a snowflake will appear in my book of poems & short stories titled Réquiem (release date | April 2021)–

Poetic Series: Requiem for a Dream | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Requiem for a Dream

Within the confines
of my mind, you plumed
and branded signs
that bled me, leaving me entombed.

You left a requiem for a dream:
my arms groping in the mist
of a pallid phantom’s scheme
whose kiss I did not dare resist.

Puzzling fiction of the unreal:
inexistent figment of my horrid fears
that behind a mournful reality conceals
you… as your medieval image disappears.

Requiem for a dream of hallucinating lust
is a requiem for a dream that turns love into dust.


–Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in July of 2021–

–Requiem for a Dream | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will appear in my book of poems & short stories titled Réquiem (release date | January 2021)–

Your Covid–19 Death Wish

–september 23, 2020–
springfield, oh

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

May the universe grant you
the so-called freedom you seek.
My goal is not to change your foolish views,
nor rustic thoughts birthed by your feet.

May the grant be yours, and only yours.
And if George Washington prefers,
let him readily confer
such freedom and its idiocy,
as you bask in your delinquency
and stupidity of life without a mask.
For George, it’s an easy task.

Do you realize that we speak
of your suicide?
Your arrogance and trumpery1 at its peak…

Even more than simple homicide,
it’s the battery & murder of those you might infect.

God speaks to you, his-her-its message don’t reject:
let others live happily
with their masks under “oppression.”

But should you want to live satanically…
Well, as for you and your fetishized transgression,
may the angels see you as you are: a murderer,
an aggressor,
an ass, and the epitome of retrogression.

Poema: Encanto de Puerto Rico y Éire | historias de un embrujo hermoso… surrealistas

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

V

Encanto de Puerto Rico y Éire

Un nicho para la realeza difunta encontrará.
El destino de un amor verdadero será su guía
y quebrantará la separación concertada por el mar.

De las sogas de la muerte, Taína te desatará
y tu espíritu –Connell– rebobinará
hacia su luz apasionada.

Ambas almas alzarán vuelo, tal como está escrito,
liberadas del palomar y reencontradas
donde no es suficiente la eternidad, hechizadas
con el encanto de Éire y Puerto Rico.


–La versión en inglés de La Historia Poética del Amor Feroz y Atlántico de La Princesa Taína y el Príncipe Connell aparecerá en la publicación de mi novela stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal en abril del año 2021–
