"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Sergio A. Ortiz



Half crucified, I touch
your young face. Now, we are doves
orbiting another part of the city.

I lived to regret
the line, your face, I touched.




I avoid remembering
the reverse of a smile
your hands
chiseled to perfection
on beer foam
