Untitled (Chispitas), 7” x 7”, acrylic and gouache on canvas, 2021, Andrea Muñoz Martinez


the red brick human honeycombs 

lined the stick ball stadium — the hide and go seek — 

the street — the first kiss by a centipede of cars — 

the waiting — the looking — and yearning 

for the welcome turn at the end of block —

then the stick ball play — and the hide — and the tag

then the fireflies in all the windowed cells bloomed a forest fire wave

then the day became foreshortened for the waiting and the hanging 

and the never-came festooned the glittering disappointment of the night
