Construction Magazine

IMG_2397One of my poems– Mariachis of Garibaldi— was published yesterday in a beautiful online magazine called “Construction.” I encourage readers to check out their site.

This is how the editors describe the magazine:

Construction is a political, cultural, and literary online magazine that updates during the week. It is an independent start-up that does not break news but publishes critical and informative content. Since its inception in June 2011, it has featured interviews with figures such as Steve Hindy, president of the Brooklyn Brewery, and The New Yorker’s Joan Acocella; profiles of the biographer Robert Caro and the literary critic Edward Said; Benjamin Taylor’s introduction to the selected letters of Saul Bellow; a wide array of political and cultural commentary; and a diverse, international collection of original fiction, poetry, and visual art by known and unknown artists alike. Construction exists to fill a content void left by major newspapers, real-time aggregators, topic-specific sites, and personal bloggers.


Mariachis of GaribaldiCenter of Zocalo

Tarnished brass trumpets,
guitarrones and violins strain

to reconcile. The moon hides
behind a smog-tired sky.

Packs of wolves, sleek black
with silver trim show off

sombreros, suits and such
displays of tenderness!

Young couples embrace
on iron benches,

and old couples,
not speaking, walk away.
