Poetry & Photographs by Luis Cuauhtémoc Berriozábal
THE LIGHT Who has seen the light? Who has been blinded by the light? The stars at night, the sun setting, do you know it is not to be taken lightly? Have you felt its significance? Is the woman you love your light? How much do you believe that? You are surrounded by light. Your head is filled with it. There is a flash of light that shines on you as your life is in danger. You feel it on your skin. It blinds your eyes, touches your heart. If it ever goes away, you will go away. You must not take the light for granted. MY LIKENESS Dear, who are you? My likeness and enemy. Weaving false stories. Who may you be? Am I to blame? Soft are your punches. Almost like words. You want to kill me. I love you still.
