Simon Anton Niño Diego Baena
Wearing her black veil, grandma used to scare us
She wanted us to sleep early, and she believed
noises outside the house; long, slimy fingers
scattered on my bedroom floor.
Richard Wagner’s Dream
In my nightmare, he spoke to me about it.
He described to me the frozen expressions
Additionally, the horse was in bad shape
