Arguments with destiny: 18

1 / El Nopal

Each spiked bud is a revolution
prickling the flat surface of the moon.

2 / El Diablito

You should never give gifts to the gods
that take you under.

3 / La Mano

After I am stripped down, I conceal nothing.
Someone once unrolled parchment, pointed, said Here.

4 / El Corazon

Tomorrow, forgiveness.
Tonight, the feast of tears.

5 / El Alacran

It is true, I have seen the venomous
cowering beneath the house-post.
