in the end, we were there-not there
two present absentees 
sharing an apartment vacated by a relationship

partners in the crime of abetting mutual misery
though neither of us...Read More

late spring arthropods
not as things should be
many absentees
swallows still absent
butterflies the odd one
today a wood brown
azure springtime sky
should be full of life... empty
no i'm going blind
house sparrows chirping
heard but cannot be seen
pond water warming
the common garden
spider A diadematus absent

Why lame
Non sense, non sense all non sense
Along the way criticism makes no sense
Psalms of encouraging lights
Perish beliefs across entire sites

Was all I hear from value absentees.

With the summer’s air that could not travel far.

Without exchanging words, but the language of love
We fought and struggled for attention,

Love Poem
Love Poem, 2011
V. Ortiz Vazquez

I am no slam poetry poet
No love story reside within my pencil
Strawberries, tossed salad has no residency
Smooth skin, deep breath, loud moans
Non existent
Bleeding pen draws away
The thought, idea of love making through ink
Passion flow with no...Read More

Christmas cards come from absentees
Bringing so many Christmas wishes
And those you get to see in person
Are greeted with Christmas kisses

It’s the time for friends and family
Exchanging gifts beneath the tree
A time to enjoy every single moment
And make it as magical...Read More
