Best Poem of Abraham de la Torre

War

Unpremeditated, just a reflexive blink,
Was not as startled as the glitter of grime
Against the sun-streaked light.

The idea of a memorandum-laden airplane
Stirred the rust of my machine guns.

Unrelenting, my magazine would spew
Spurts of rage till the argument
Yields to the louder, more determined Soldier.

I would give my victory no rest.
It will die, of its own accord,
Among the intricate complexities of
Newer, better armament.

Rubber bands. Rubber sheaths.

My conscious song would be a beat
Rhythmic as a heart
Even as it ...

Read the full of War

Reverie

Yonder the floodlights exude a cheerless glow
drowned desperately by screaming football enthusiasts
they run for the ball
ignoring a confetti of dust
out of familiarity perhaps.

The theater borrows unnecessary light
the ball reaches for a 747 overhead
Dione Warwicke is muffled
