“Hair” by Francisco Aragón

for M

1.

who conceived that ravine
or
the contour
of those slopes

Torbay
—washing
over
him as he swims—

is trying to say
don’t let
the barber
shave
below
his collar
2.

I love
breathing
him in

my fingers
raking
his chest

a cub
wanders
the forest
after Andrés Montoya & Francisco X. Alarcón
