Roberto Suarez Torres 1983 (New York)

Alone, all together
thick leaves like opaque skin,
naked, climbing mountains
rashly. Wobbly shackles;
minds untie amid limbs…
Outrage! Shadows rescue
burly gushing barrels.

Weaving sashay clappers
drizzly, nuzzle spellbound
throbbing necks, where billows:
gaudy blissful berries,
garland serpents handy,
swelling, thrashing, rising.

Chosen, kindle wholly
luster morning convenes.
rapture frightens anguish,
dropping musty pieces.
open, purging, breathing.
Witness graceful presents…
Alone, all together.

    Wow, what an incredible piece of poetry! The imagery in this poem is absolutely stunning - I could picture the thick leaves and garland serpents so vividly. The way the words flow together is magical and creates such a captivating atmosphere. I love how the poem ends with the line "Alone, all together" - it's such a beautiful reminder that even in our moments of solitude, we are still connected to the world around us. Overall, this poem is a true work of art and I am awed by the talent behind it. Keep writing!
