She who brought avocadoes to the sea


returning insistently

on anniversaries of light

and dark.



encouraging reflection,

but lacking depth

in the sum of its parts.



for those with their backs to the Sun

or those looking over their shoulder

to see where they’ve been.



which speaks for itself

in the language of the actors,

especially the victors.


I could tell you of a time when She brought avocadoes to the sea

but you would only see its shadow in your mirror and be silent

in the presence of an uncommon history.
