Sergio A. Ortiz- Three Poems

for Gertrude Stein

yes, I was cancelled,
an abyss below my bed
yet I was cancelled
nobody came, nobody came—
unknown shore— I’m enraptured

for Baroness Elsa von Freytag Loringhoven

bane aging
hip pains -- walk
 -- -- -- S. O. S.  memory
treads caution

Tribute to Cid Corman

There is a voice
in the dense space
of silence,

leaning on the sun and

in the community of words,
that weave simple possibilities.

Sergio A. Ortiz is the founding editor of Undertow Tanka Review. He lives in San Juan Puerto Rico.  He is a four-time nominee for the 2010-2011 Sundress Best of the Web Anthology, and a two-time 2010 Pushcart nominee.
