Alebrijes — NaPoWriMo 13


Wild thing
without meaning.
Dictionaries deny
the evident passions
beneath your wings
under your hooves
and between your claws.
Familiar forms tacked together,
you belie the dreams
from which you emerge
sweaty and damp
with frightened rage
and joyous wonder.
Colored in shades that shout
Of sun, heat, and sun again
you fade briefly
only to rise again
on the strength of
imagination.

  1. What a kitty cat in your picture! Thanks for the poem that goes with ALL my alabrijes. I will have to make a copy and fame it to hang with my alabrijetitas. Now I will have to find a kitty of sorts.
