Down But Not Out

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 4:23 pm

A hot rainy day

a hot steamy sluggish way

an aggressive heat

weighing me down to my feet

melting the asphalt

on the street

where it is hot enough

to barbecue

a slab of frozen meat.

Overwhelming and attacking

like Cuomo’s plan for hydrofracking

that will take our souls

and away

start hacking

like the pipes in Borinquen

where they want oil tracking

Mr. Albany Big Man

will celebrate his bullied backing

for a company his wife

has her interests stacking.

Despite the news

despite the heat

my heartl still dances

to a Salsa beat

keeping the energy

flowing through my feet

to the claves

the tumbaos

of the stage

of the street

while I may be only

one conguero

I will put out enough spirit

of an entire fleet.

~Miguel
