A Poem by Writer/Publisher Abel Salas "Ni Una Mas"

NI UNA MAS by Abel Salas

Ni una mas

Not one more

Tear or muffled

Scream in the

Back seat of

Your drug runner

Suburban with

tinted windows

Hole in your soul

Ni una mas

Not one more

Broken hearted

Mother who

Still doesn’t know

What became

of her child

Ni una… Continue
