Marcus Edwards


Those eyes said to me
I don’t know where to begin
Vision clouded by destiny

A verse forever left unsung
Plays in my soul
Yet the song goes on

Her tree is Anglo-Saxon
Juanita was named for her
Mother’s ex-husband’s former girlfriend

Those eyes did not understand
                        what the mouth began
As if with a foreign tongue
                        I failed to understand
Then she whispered Adios
