2 Poems by Sergio A. Ortiz


Tired? Yes, tired of two lips,
twenty fingers, & I don't know
how many words. Of fragmented
grayish memories.

Worn-out of this old
modest skeleton so chaste
that when it undresses
I won't know if they're the same
bones used while living.

Drained of lacking feelers,
of not having one eye
on each shoulder blade
& an authentic cheerful tail.
Of this degenerate
hypocritical little ass.

But above all, weary of being
with myself when the dream ends.
Me, & the same nose and legs,
like I don't want to wait for the shoal
in my beach complexion,
offering the dew two magnolia breasts,
caressing earth with my caterpillar belly.


I’m in love
with a homeless man.
We’ve got a lot

in common,
lawyers politicians

We have heated discussions
about the face-fucking
activity in D.C. toilets.

But when he grabs
my dick & licks my nipples
it’s just me & him.
