Yesterday, Allie said Cassie posted Demetria Martinez's poem "Upon Waking, a Lenten Dream" and she reposted it in a comment for me. Amusingly, I had just tagged the entry in which I talk about that poet's reading at Smith back in November of 2004.
So here's an excerpt from another poem by Demetria Martinez:
Again in clay and in ink, remaking
Our covenant: to become
The eye of the storm, El ojo del dios.
-from "La promesa: for Sonia (born and died May 26, 2000)"
