¿what inspires me?

by luis s. gonzález-acevedo

–december 31, 2018–
méxico city, méxico


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

Poem: As I Kiss Your Mouth (translation of Al Besar Tu Boca)

Selected Verses:

As I Kiss Your Mouth

(translation of Al Besar Tu Boca)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Over Caribbean sand, I lay your frozen body
so the sun can punish your naked skin.
Over your soul, I lay my expectant body
and your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth.

The seductive surf coats us with its foam.
Running through you,
the sea’s waves spark a frenzy of tremors.
Your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth…

…Hasten the sway of your waves.
Intensify the brushing against my skin.
Surrender your body in erotic homage.
Celebrate your rising breasts as I kiss your mouth.

Poem: Dew (translation of Sereno)

Selected Verses:

Dew

(translation of Sereno)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Your affections are children of the night
whose father dies at sunset;
errant, with no one to reproach
their conduct in realms wet with dew.

Dew covers the face of its nocturnal reach
like a bloodhound covers terrain;
waiting for a flower to fall in a serene trance,
vital symptom of its nocturnal venom…

…Night’s death is day’s birth.
Dawn participates in the astral encounter.
Sunset awaits rebelliously,
intending to once again unleash its dew…

…The sun submerges in waters,
the moon springs up from the sea,
and Dew opens the doors
to bedrooms of roses lusting for love.

Poem: Mystical World of Hayuya

Poem: Mystical World of Hayuya (translation of Mundo Místico de Hayuya)

Selected Verses:

Mystical World of Hayuya

(translation of Mundo Místico de Hayuya)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

I hope to take you to another world,
enveloped and drowned in haze;
and immerse you in the deep
of its sky and sea of foam…

…the realm will possess you fondly.
The subsky is strawberry,
clouds dress with cotton,
and every day is a surprise.

In its center, a town sleeps.
Mountains surround it.
With its eyes, it wants to see me
and hold you in its heart…
