Small Business Everyday

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 10:15 pm


El Barrio Music Center

Shopping along the

neighborhood street used to

have and active vibe

a soulful pulse

a spitfire beat that

used to keep them coming

steady on their feet

every business making

competition feel the heat

publicity and advertising

inspiring and energizing

not shy or discreet

bringing in the business

like a newly landed fleet.


It used to be


I say

shopping along

the neighborhood street

now seemingly covered

over by a blank paged

sheet stifling the vibe

muffling the beat

increasing the number

of landlords who cheat

forcing the deals with

their tenants to go

sour after at first

sounding sweet

every store the same

maybe just a different

name making shopping

such a shame a mindless

careless misguided game.


May the unique SURVIVE

and the vibe REVIVE

may shopping for




keep breathing

Walking down a path

on a grey desolate day when

no one seems to be around to

embrace no one around to

socialize no one to witness

the sadness in the eyes

looking at the moments

at the memories at the

shadows flashing that will

not abort no matter how hard

the psyche of the mind tries.


Shadows of who was once there

in a time of greater

affection of what materialized

as greater care shadows of the

many we once walked with

we once talked with

of whose happiness

we tried to share of whose

sadness we tried to bare.


We look at a tree

so stark so bare its leaves

now gone not long since they

were there they day they fell

we may or may not be

aware their absence pricking

with pangs of despair from

not knowing when, how

why, or where.


So many strangers inflicting

so many dangers so many

sad and tragic life changers

so much duress so much

hatred that can only

sadden and depress amid

the denial that there

should be a stress on

the treatment of the many

with mental illness.


Further down the

path a sharp cold wind

sends shivers to the spine

distress to the heart

and tears flooding the

body and soul executing

a longing for the time

never returning.

Her Destiny Unknown

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 4:17 pm

She had it all

the dreams

the styles

the dead presidents

the jewels

she knew the ins

the outs

she knew the business

she knew the rules

she could manipulate

the loyal

she could isolate

the fools.


She could move

she could groove

she could shake it

to the beat

she could foresee

each step she

had to take

to make it down

the street.


But the streets are

never a smooth paved

walk never a straight

focused groove

talk that you can

draw your point A

to a perfect point B

with summer sidewalk



(She knew that)

people around you

screw up people around

you shoot people around

you blow up

people around you

leaving you to never

know when time will

really be up.




(She knew)

you have to focus

you have to work it

you cannot disguise for the

watching eyes

by trying to shamelessly

flaunt it or

twirk it.


She knew it

she could see

it she knew many

who totally blew

it she did not want

to just smell success

she really wanted

to be it she really

wanted to follow

it but with all that

got messed up

along the way she

did not know if she

could swallow it.

Autumn Time Moves On

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 7:47 pm

DSC03756Down a trail once covered

in the blossoms of a warm July

he walks to admire the new

stark present as petals and

leaves now cover his path leaving

only the bare of time moved on.


A dark mud leads up to

the pond he spent days having

fished for hours grasping at

the shades above as now the weeds

below have prevailed and the chills

in the air limit the past time.


Stopping by to admire the

pond he still sees a clear water

on a now unsettled day he still

sees a natural wonder even as

the pristine skies and glow of

summer sun have all gone away.


To many, things look very

pale as colors are gone

but those are only the bright

while the darker colors

from a grey by day to a

black as night still inspire

him to take a warm hearted

delight in the natural passing

of time.

Levantaras Borinquen

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 10:11 pm


tu belleza regresara

tu gente perseveraran.



tu energia remendara

tus recursos reavivaran.


Tu deseo es fuerte

no ha recibido su muerte.


Tu destino es en tus manos

con el espiritu sano de tus hermanos.


No seras subvendido

con mal publicidad.


No seras sin los recursos

de tu tranquilidad.






otra vez.

Tomorrow Is In Our Hands Today

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 10:10 pm

What are we doing?

What are we not doing?

What are our younger

and future generations

going to really and truly

learn to do because

we who once did see

things through became

dependent on someone or

something else that could

just as well do it too.


We have learned to simply

press buttons and simply

look at screens to simply

get what we want

learn what we want

create what we want

even alter information

if it is not

what we want

simply by a gadget’s

ways and means.


Now we do not even

go to the

store we now

shop online more

and more if we have

to actually go somewhere

we want an Uber driver or

self-driving car to

get us there.


So much of what we now

have and so much of what

we now do were originally

developed as aids for those

who could not get out and

do so as more and

more of us who can

get out and about seeing

every day through

we must ask ourselves

when guiding our

younger generations

“Are we enabling them to learn,

and are we being true?”
