Poetry from Graciela Noemi Villaverde

Light skinned Latina woman with blonde hair and earrings and a black top.
Like a boat wake 
What, escape from time 
And not from water
I come from the slow day of words, 
That the moment undoes to the elements
I come and prostrate myself at this time of the afternoon, before the altar of shadows
I come from the gestures that have sunk in a sea 
Without voices, with dry violet eyes, on the bottom rock
I know that the twilights accumulate and surround me
Here I am 
I have been going, silently, for the silences
The times do not match 
The words leave me in cycles of old voices 
That's why I come and go 
No questions, no answers.
