Treasure Island

Guillermo Veloso

(September 25 1962 / New York City)

Blind Love


The poetry of blind man is not metered
In contrast hue or color
It is textured
In smell
In sound
In feel
A light finger upon the breast of a lover
An epic is forged
On the shallow breath
Of a tender sigh
Of his unseen lover
And verses fall like rain
