From The Heavens To The Hills

A Poem by Orlando G Gonzales III
"

From the collection "Al Front: Saldado Instrúyete vol.2”

"
He prays he’s …
a conscious
identical to his victims’,
identified as the city’s definition of a hero
reminiscent of a once beloved refugee
ceding
“most proceed to please me
once the sun reveals
there are ghosts along Mulholland’s
eucalyptus and palm trees”
to avoid seeming resilient
to those who refuse to harness
their own desire to appease the competition
considered too harmless
to eventually claim residence up in heaven
