Abstract

LOVE RUSHES BY / Luis Omar Salinas the leaves of autumn. And I want to wrestle with fate and toss it about. I also want to believe I'm thinking of those evenings of love rushing by me as thrushes rustle through in the threads of hope entangling me, prodding me to believe in a face coming towards me one afternoon, weeks or years from now-- perhaps an afternoon when the valley rain has stopped with just such a face to sit beside me and sun catches in the window on the cafe and linger over tea . . . where birds dance about like unconcerned acrobats-- for like them I want to learn I take leave of the patio the lesson of unforgetfullness. I put on my jacket and drive through the fields ... a full moon is rising--I light a cigarette and sing to all the madonnas of faith. 52 · The Missouri Review
