Specks & Strakes

Roberto Suarez Torres 1983 (New York)



Each tongue a daze,
The knot of chaps tied unswerving.
Cold, as pane racing…
Yet balk at a Liberator.
Attached paper, staples
and letters enclosed in dust,
Each ebb lust,
cherry maples
found in a yielded rush,
eating out of an incinerator.
All pacing
specks & strakes graze,
a fable
Like pulp, by the mush of a maze.
