¿what inspires me?

island mountains against my small existence
a palm tree’s sensual sway
and the atlantic nights that drown my arrogance
caribbean breezes hissing through banana leaves their say
and the nostalgia of their vital scent from far away
the scorching sun against my skin over warm sands
while sea waves season me with foam and salt
and the way guava ignites the ocean’s salivary glands
the little frogs’ shrill song followed by their indiscretions
the moon’s kiss of rum and sugarcane
and night’s surrender to coffee passions:
the sweet and bitter darkness that humid skies can’t tame

¿what inspires me? will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–


Poem… My Life Smiles

My Life Smiles

(translation|modification of Mi Vida Sonríe por Tus Gestos)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

My life does not weep in mourning.
Your body heals me with happiness
and mutes all crying.
Because of you, my life smiles.

Make me laugh with smiling gestures, Coquette.
Seduce my saddened soul
and embrace me with the steady winds
that caress the desert’s hellish heat.

Infuse life into this fallen soul
and make a smile out of my lips.
Soothe me with fresh breezes
over waves of warming joy.


Observe and study Ximena Sariñana’s gestures: perfect…

Gothic Jill’s Seduction

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

The icy graze of my touch in the wind
burns your lips with tortured fires.
Blood invades your pallid skin, saliva thickens
while suffering my hands’ warmth in the cool evening breeze.

As I caress your body in the frozen night…
Surrender soot-stained lips!
Curve your back in body-tensing plight!

My breezes make you quiver, I know.

Against caressing pillows,
your lips settle like gentle flames.
Forceful winds lull you
into hurricane spirals that thrash you
with their slumberous motion,
leaving you forever bound
to my lips seduction…

Poem… Let Me Seduce Your Lips


Let Me Seduce Your Lips

(translation|modification of Déjame Seducir Tus Labios)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Stop and feel the icy graze
of my hands in the wind.
Your lips throb inflamed with fire
as you let me seduce them with tempting hands.

Feel your blood invade your labial skin
and your saliva thicken.
Feel my hands like an afternoon breeze
as you let me seduce your lips with tempting hands.

My hands fall upon your body like a frozen night.
Your body rises like a bird in rapid winds.
My breezes make you quiver against your pillow
as you let me seduce your lips with tempting hands.

My pleasant cooling calm lulls you.
Dreams of my hurricane winds ravage
and still you so that I can kiss you
as you let me seduce your lips with tempting hands.
