Everything Crumbles How everything crumbles like a cookie, like snow- men who get too warm. See the sad faces sitting in rickety chairs holding a book of sad poems read from top to bottom. The moonlight poems are the worst. Silence fills every room in the house. How the tumblers and bumblers fall on slippery streets. They do not cry when their bottoms bruise up in the cold Polar-like pavement. Luis is the author of Make the Water Laugh (Rogue Wolf Press, 2020) and eight chapbooks from Kendra Steiner Editions, including Make the Light Mine (2016). Recent poems have been in or accepted by Ariel Chart, Blue Collar Review, Escape Into Life, and Otoliths. He lives in California and works in the mental health field in Los Angeles.
