You Called Me Corazon

Sandra Cisneros

That was enough
for me to forgive you.
To spirit a tiger
from it's cell.

Called me corazon*
in that instant before
I let go the phone
back to the cradle.

Your voice small.
Heat of your eyes,
how I would've placed
my mouth on each.

Said corazon
and the word blazed
like a branch of jacaranda.

* corazon = heart or sweetheart
