Pueblando in Colombia,
my aunt points and says her name is
la tusa, meaning
"a girl whose boyfriend dumped her
for another girl,"
of the blue mountain
with the sharpest peak


imagining this strawberry
is his heart
as I slice it


my chocolatina jet wrapper
says that the three-toed sloth
sleeps all day
and only climbs down trees
to climb up others


a barking street dog
defends
the abandoned railroad tracks


green-spotted toucan
his black beak is perfect
for social distancing
