Poem: Caresses (translation of Caricias)

Selected Verses:


(translation of Caricias)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

The hand hovers
and enjoys the contour
of a body drenched
by oily rain.

The errant skin
adheres to the fingers…

…The accelerated to-and-fro
of the hand stimulates,
further curving
the arched back…

…of such masculine hand
enlaced in her hair.
