This is a virtual cafe where all ideas are entertained all facts discerned, all topics discussed. And just because the proprietor has a passion for Christ, books, and the Acoustic guitar, that doesn't mean you can't veer wildly off into different subjects. So, come in, have a coffee (imported especially from Verble's finca in El Salvador), and talk about whatever you want.
“This poem is
part of a series I’m working on that mythologizes the town in Brazil
where my mother was born and raised. Mysterious, and possibly
miraculous things begin to occur there, and every resident has a
different explanation. The speaker believes the reason for the
miracles is a hamadryad nymph with a poem tattooed on her back, who
ran away rather than be worshipped.”
