by Sergio Ortiz

 

muscles covered with Orisha oils
spiral porous into nature

stirring up his legsโ€ฆ Samson moves
through the sands upon his sand

sweet and strong like Cuban rum
bound with bow strings

betrayed by a pair of
poisonous hips


Sergio Ortiz has a BA in English Literature from Inter-American University, and a MA in philosophy from World University. His poems have been published, or are forthcoming in: Autumn Sky Poetry, The Smoking Poet, The Acentos Review, Poesia, and Words-Myth.
