Best Cesar Cantu Poems

Crossroads talk like trees
Staring at the street
Backboned sights
Unable to dance around
Yet instead prefer to sink
In the inverted rock pit

Gutless planets building
The most fearful liquid
Nebular night
Flowing cracks
Drowned in beauty and salt
Diamonds with no pride

Pale language
Produces greenish blush
Fingertips crash and grow
Labyrinths of submarine talk
Paper stone steps
Keep flying straight
Fastest way to get lost

Highway notes
Portals keep them cold
Trigger every verse
Beyond and beyond
Until every cloud falls
Snails shall grow and evolve

Oh, sorry about that
Took the sharpened road
Flat spikes release coral spores
Psychedelic magma floods
Should avoid looking up…

    Absolutely love "paper stone steps" a mind blowing compilation of three innocent words.

    wow, my friend, this is like a kaleidoscope! Every line is a thought or a feeling apart, changing, mutating constantly, giving more than one image-meaning! Brilliant! Keep going...Ruben.

    Wow, Cesar, this write takes us to the heavens, beneath the water with "submarine talk" and across a very intriguing highway. Could the coral spores be lava? (I've been warned not to look up.) Quite a journey here! Thanks for the experience. Love, carolyn
