The 2River View 21.3 (Spring 2017)

Richard Pacheco

Blind Man

Like the blind man and
the elephant
every time we meet
I come away
with a totally different you.

Fresh Coat of Paint

Even the fresh coat of paint
cannot hide
the shreds of wallpaper
still clinging to the walls
in a crevice by the door.
