Poem… Crystal Eyes


Crystal Eyes

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Crystal eyes framed with skinful snows
and separated by a perfect slope
that descends into luscious mounds
of crimson petals
inflamed with savage lust…

Dominant face of beauty
–piercing with crystal eyes
my sea green isles.

Bewitching crystal eyes,
drive your lustful stakes through mine.
Incite my soul with jagged grazes.

Rest your neck on my clenching hand
and let me steer your wanton stare
into my seas of green
until your crystal eyes and my sea green isles
turn erotic cyan.

your snowman

by luis s. gonzález-acevedo

–september 30, 2018–
columbus, ohio, usa


snowflakes settled over ground
so your trembling hands could mold
a snowman in the winter’s cold.
my chills of life have left you spellbound.

i’m the multitude of flakes & crystals,
the frozen sculpture of your dreams.
but seasons pass, and my fate is dismal:
spring turns arctic sculptures into crumbling figurines.

¿what melting fear do spring birds trill?
¿will wicked time bring my demise?
the memories of my christmas love will forever chill
your new year’s tremors with flakes of falling ice.
