Away



I am October

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord


and I whisper tails of light

in

the wind. 
 

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

 You will hear me weep

and

you will hear me 

roar.

Then, I will spread gems

of ruby red

and

burnished gold

for you to

behold

but for only 

an instant

until I come again

and 

sweep us both 

away.

Remembering


Solitude 

does not mean

you are 

alone.

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

I actually crave 

the empty chamber

of 

my mind where

people dear to me

come back over and over

through the rhythm 

of 

a piece of music

from behind 

the pages of a small story

written

or  

in between the intricate weaving 

of 

ordinary materials

shaped into art.

I've got a four-day weekend 

to 

sit down 

and remember all of you.
