From Submission Sunday

By Kenyatta Jean-Paul García

Getting Ready

Inflated to width of a ribbon

a miniature earthquake

sneaks through sleep

without a patron saint

 

As the icon of insomnia

keeps watch

over the gloves

of sloth.

 

Backwards is a falsity

there is no reversal

 

Shallow is the silk

of space

to create ties

wrapped around the neck

of nature

getting ready for work.
