from the October 2005 issue: Jaguar Tongues


Now and then
I walk backwards.
It is my way of remembering.

If I only walked forward,
I could tell you
about forgetting.

This last poem in this sequence was originally published in Guchachi 'Reza' 'Iguana Rajada,' Revista de la Casa de la Cultura de Jugitin, Oaxaca, pp. 49-50, Quinta Epoca, Primavera de l995.
