call me Tiger
i hear the voice of Villa

for the weapons
for the mistakes of the voice

I hear voices he said,
With a toothy smile.
A boy, 19, in the northwest corner of Mexico.

A response to Night Flowers: An Evening with Jomama Jones
By Ryan Diaz

 

 

All the new thinking is about loss.
In this it resembles all the old thinking.

—Robert Haas, “Meditation at Lagunitas”

an impure found poem in response to Jomama Jones Oct 23, 2017

Jomama Jones

the voice is heard  and felt
and enters  before  the body

the voice haunts while still alive
ooooh ooooh oooh 
in the distance from the ether
it resurrects us 
before the body has come 
into being before us
