May The Force Be With You, Rey Urias

Isidra felt
a disturbance in the force,

as if a million people
had just died,

or was it just gas,
maybe she was pregnant,

oh, hell no!
She grabbed her stomach.

A few minutes later
she got the news

that Rey had been
in an accident,

but was ok,
thank God he was ok,

she lit a candle
to La Virgen de Guadalupe,

she felt like strangling him
or shoving him

into a swollen arroyo,
but soon she regained her senses,

went back to work.

the angry red planet
had not been a misnomer.

Having a hard time
trying to go to sleep that night,

she kept remembering
their last goodbye,

he’d said, “here’s looking
at you, Prieta. ”

as he kissed her.
He had such a way with words.
