Mudlark No. 54 (2014)
Soledad Montoya 
wears red
Soledad Montoya’s 
black hair flows 
like a fountain 
of crows
hands in front of her
heart a cradle 
for grief
the moon 
even darker
than its night

her arms crossed
in fury her wide lips
her mantilla of stars 
and shiny insects
anger pours out of her hair       
she’ll give them more 
than they paid for
