DPF / Meléndez

For sometimes when the world turns upside down, it’s a blessing, from Poetry, September 2017.

from Future Memories / by Mario Meléndez, translated from the Spanish by Eloisa Amezcua

My sister woke me very early
that morning and told me
‘Get up, you have to come see this
the ocean’s filled with stars’
