to all the broken men
When I close my eyes, the angels come down to my rescue. I see them now. They speak to me in my sleep.

I dream that my arms are wide enough to hold them as they stumble in the darkness, attempting to assert themselves in the void. I dream that my heart is the ozone that covers this planet and my love is the air that they breathe.

From then on, the individual ‘I,’ separated from the rest of the world, became the chief perspective from which we viewed reality.”

My life as a city-dwelling gringa turned me into a dull knife blade: I wanted it too, that sharpness, the ability to see what others cannot see.
