Poetry: Mind Mazes

Out of the Sandbox

By Lianys Olmeda

Our hands are heavy with the jewels we hold to the sky

Our noses are full with musk and lily

Blinded by the shimmer of our pearls, our steel 

Drawn and rebuked by savory sweetness

Our hands are heavy with walls

If only we were tired enough to rest our arms 

To clear the labyrinth 

And find each other 

For there was no center 

Only corpses lying in front of brick walls

Only dead-ends
