Tigs Huertas

Beyond The Garden


Look long, to take in every line 

That each can know the other

(That detail observed truly
Should hasten intimacy)
And contour's shading, jaw and eyes
Un-shadow, in the knowing
There's always a beginning
A foreigner, he pleases me 
(a curse and gift my parents gave)
His turn of phrase engaging
Mistakes creating beauty
A sentence-full of words thrown down
Land wilfully, anarchic
He gives them better meaning
