“I am reborn here.
In this conscious, in this body.
I am breathing beneath the sun,
a star that shines like all the others,
but kind to stay it’s wrath.
I awaken on this planet amid those
who’ve forgotten or those usurped
by our times. Lost in this dissention
I have become like a fish swimming
against the current.
Leaping, flying–I’ve become divided.”
Order the new release Ghost Roads, poetry by Michael Aaron Casares. Ghost Roads features 29 poems and is a reflective volume of poetry shifting through the silence of quiet San Antonio.
