Allende’s Voice: Pablo’s Posture

Santiago’s sun
was just beginning
to reveal itself

I scanned the heavens
surveying a city
first served up
in the context of

Chile’s beauty;
her honesty
his delight

Rooted in my mind
as certain as
The Andes

Today, I stand
amongst my kin, friend-folk
The People
of Concepción
God’s wrath
cast upon
the coast
Port Au Prince
Our collective memory.

Secretary Clinton
President Bachelet

into something comfortable
work out
the details

with a prayerful hope

Of re-Dedicating
The temple
