Counselor
for the one who taught me beauty inside-out...and Nina Simone...


I heard about your passing
and my heart is still paralyzed
frozen in my chest
there was no way for me
to gather myself in time
when they laid you to rest

Ronald...

I just want to thank you
"posthumously"
for being the one who
helped me see
that all beauty is not
measured physically
and real treasure
can't be perceived
visibly...

Oh...Ronald...

your wide eyes
& sweet, shy smile
resembled a young
James Baldwin, to me
& you spoke Spanish
so elegantly....

though you live in my
memory
...I shall always
miss you, terribly
