Sangre De Cristo

Eve De Bona

I live alone now

in the long shadow

or these mountains.

Tumors

fill my lungs

and I am growing thin.

By day the dead

visit me and we talk,

sometimes for hours.

At night the puma

leaves his cold cave

to pace outside my door.

I dream that my lungs

are the wings of a great butterfly,

my spine its body.

On waking

I recall everyone

whom I have loved,

and my heart,

touched by the sacred one,

begins to burn.
