(Two cinquains by CMB and JMB written while waiting for our plane – Nov 5, 2013 – from Ohio to Miami)

Metal
Elbow water
In a meatball sandwich
Sloshing in the tub or stinger
Ray gun

Toothpick
Swisher grease hall
One hundred bottles of
Burning bread crumbs and towel lint
Inside

(Three cinqains written by CMB in the plane – Nov 6, 2013 – from Miami to Montevideo)

Two hands
Two feet and legs
Two arms, eyes, nostril, breasts
Two lungs, kidneys, ovaries, and
One mouth

Your mouth
With corners of
Lips at flexy angles
Looking sexy with lipstick on
Let’s kiss

Suitcase
Full, my head soars
Pulling words from the sky
But swallows hard because of ears
Popping

(Three cinquains written by CMB, JMB, Luis Bravo, and his son, Alejo, while riding in a car – Nov 7, 2013)

Viento
Luminoso
La motocicleta
We have no gas today my dear
Verdad?

Tumba
Asesina
You hide under water
Escupes langostas de mar
Negras

León
Under my chair
Dulce arboleda
De serpientes y borrachos,
Tiger

(Two cinquains written by JMB and CMB En La Plaza – Nov 8, 2013)

Parade
Cluster Headache
Beginnings of a “Poof” !
Like a pedo de la tumba
Marching

Shadow
Of a prospect
Shortly scalding hammer
Hear it hissing on the seashore
Eye-like

(Four cinquains written during rehearsal on Nov 8, 2013 for BIG JMB/Luis Bravo Poesia Extravaganza by JMB, CMB, and Juan Angel Italiano)

NO VOICE
Del carajo
CANTANDO TURBANTE
This is your canasta sounding
Like teeth

HUNGRY
Hair to toe nail
Splintering like raw light
LAS TONTAS CARNESTOLENDAS
EAT US

Tuerca
PISO SOLO
Sit still in balcony
Where the corndogs float away blind
EL SOL

Touché
Combinación
TANTO CUANTO CANTO
It is raining twice and doubly
Thumbling

(Cinco cinqains by JMB and CMB before and after lunch in restaurant off the square – Nov 9, 2013)

Constant
Hammering is
Hampering my wristwatch
Drippy with greenish sweat lobsters
In heat

Chew off
The candle sticks
Soaking in detergent
Lay down to sleep in the washer
With rice

Tien
To de dormir
Hace buen tiempo
Y la bandera se quema
Negra

Chivo
Léon tiger
Straddling the lampfinger
Staying under the shadow of
Bad breath

Descend
The soft ladder
Splinter the window pane
And shoulder the sandwich cloture
With crust

(A haiku of sorts by CMB, JMB, and Clemente Padín – Nov 9, 2013)

El incendio
Indiferente es a la
Cinco

(Two cinquains by CMB as we wait for transport to 11/11/13 event)

MUSIC
Piano sounds
Chicken crossing the road
The documentation is a
Seed trail

Cone shaped
Trees on a line
From ear to ear mean that
Possibly you will sleep before
Xmas
