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

Not one more

Flower left

Near the marker

Where she was

Last seen

No more hiding

Behind the putrid

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

We Are San Francisco, a poem about the current state of our city

Wrote a poem to go along with my installation at Somarts called We Are San Francisco.What is San Francisco to you?Change, change. Shifting, shaping rapid, thoughtless, minimize, multiply, erase, recreate.Homogenized beauty, suburbs in the city. A rainbow of people, fade into shades of grey.Onslaught continues, more land, more money, more buildings, more restaurants, more evictions.This change to fear or face for those who stay, whose soul remains?Perhaps like the serpent we must shed our…See More
