Synthia Flores

You don't need
A back up
Of women's rights
To do
What you do

You are
Who you are
A woman
With a family
And a man

In you
We have a flower

Gemini Woman

Is as light
As a feather
Of air

And a day
With the sun
Turns into a sky
Of promising stars

Things can 
Change fast
In the life
Of a Gemini woman

When life 
Is being created
By someone like you

The Tiger Brigade

(play soprano saxophone music while reading; translation from French original)

With or without voiture
Find the criminal
With observation
Time is obliged
Because one says so

And they are not

And my wife
Is charmed
By my moustache

Excuse me
For grammar

But one feels
The Tiger Brigade

A sudden rendez-vous

In the way
I appear here
To you
I guess
You don’t mind
This sudden rendez-vous

It might help
To see me
In this tiny form
It makes it very easy
To move around

And if you ever
Get the notion
Of hearing
A young woman’s voice
While you take a stroll
Through the everlasting
Where the wind
Seems to sing
A song
You can remember
It was me

It ain't superstition
Or a flash in the pan
Something belittled
As a mental quirk

You are lucky, brother
When you got 
That instant understanding

You can be proud, sister
When you can be something

When there is
That clear notion
That you know
I wish you courage
And all the fun
When you embrace
Your intuition

The Pirate Queen 

(For Jay-Jay Juliette)

I am the one

Who knows
Where to find
The Horn of Plenty

The Treasure’s Vault
And the Strait
To Infinity 

I have lived
On a Sailing Ship
My life is like sailing
Across the Waters

My eyes are 
The Diamonds
I once collected
Under palm trees
Across the Equator

I am your Pirate Queen 
I share the Horn of Plenty 
Stories of far and away
And the Wisdom 
Of my Soul

Chandra speaking

(For Chandra Marsden)

With my music
I take you 
To your
Home universe

I see
And hear
My eyes 
And ears

My name means
I can be
Your viewpoint 
Of life
