“¿Qué monstruo vive en mí que me hace parir palabras?”
-Norge Espinosa

The sky
has been scarred.

Old marks
decaying on the skin,


white skin
which once was red,

three scars,
no tears
mumbles or cries.

Three scars
against a blue sky,

three marks
withholding time…

The scar has been scarred
telling a story beneath the marks.
