La Pelona: Mixed Media: Ester Hernández: 1980

fist of ice skin trellis pagan rubble whistling ash

a phrase turning up the dark salt's rattle arctic

ruca centuries cut and crushed cocaine terrace 

thumbed gold flock of knots chafoso grammar

woven moth-dust an egg cracking into arabic

as pretty as a gust Xquic's blood collar a fable 

braided and quickly dressed in milk boneflower
