Summary

Espiritus (and other poems) is a chapbook of poems 

from the Otherworld

the Neverland  

to the Moon 

and Stars.

She dances with the devil


Every night, her soul leaves her body

and dances with the devil

They hang on a string of moonlight

and sway to a silent rhythm


He loves her

sometimes she loves him too

Nonetheless, they always dance the night away

and hold each other as if they were dissolving


Someday, surely she will dissolve into ashes and stardust

and he will have to dance alone

His hands will miss her hands

and his feet will search for her feet


But tonight is unlike any other night

They do not just float, kiss, and bend

for they shall dance to the edge of the world

Never to return.

She is burning

She is burning in beauty

yet she is not aware of it

Not aware that the whole world

is burning with her


Burning from her lips, burning

To her fingertips, to the trees

and the grass, burning

to my longing arms


It is I who see her burning

yet I who feel it

with every move


My eyes are red, my heart

swells, burning

each time the wind

strokes

her hair, burning.
