Reading of poem “Remote and Great,” published by ABC No Rio.

Remote and Great

I know I am dusty and strange,
emerging from the Mexican plane,
sweet from heartbreak
like their chocolate,
foolishly craving you
as my pelvis kisses the ceiling.
I am a dusty lover.
 
I know I limp under God,
though when I strut home,
men admire my seesawing hip bones.
I limp only when I remember you.
 
I know the world has no notice of me-
I am too white for blacks,
and too black for whites-
my figure is both obnoxious and forgettable
until you see me fuck.
But who wants to fuck the world?
 
I wait for you.
I wait for the world.
