five one-line poems by Raul Garcia

Lost For Worlds
in the persistence of night – how many galaxies slip through nocturnalized eyes?


Umbra Eye
concealed by compulsory hallucinations, illumined to blindness, to touch the skin of a mirage



Ruminate Chaos
and chaos ruminates nothing


Eroded of Eons
the drifting astronaut sending: receiving the unanswered question


Afterimages of a Waking Dream
lingering on the striations of remembrance – like sunrays a torrent of faces cascade on windowpanes
