El Azteca

You can’t tell an Aztec
that there’s more than one sun.

You can’t tell him
that the sun and stars are one and the same.

You can’t tell him
that the sun will die one day.

He’s so fixated with the sun,
I don’t know how he makes it through the night.

I like this poem, Reyes. Last lines are great.
