Daniel Garcia-Black
November 2004



Madame Aperture

    Daniel garcia-Black is a poet and musician with an open heart and a past so intriguing, most artists are forced to fabricate theirs in an attempt to acheive legitimacy.
   Despite the urban myth and mystery that still has yet to be solved, even by the best of skeptics, he is a humble man who lives for and loves the experience of the flow of words and music between like-minded souls. This is his second appearance in poeticdiversity.



Star Bright

The night sky here in the foothills

Of the San Gabriel Mountains is never


It is salted gray with diffused light from a

Clutter of clustered stars

On the ground called

The Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area.

The number of light bulbs there roughly equal

To the human population of the world

Blinking on and off in similar fashion

To the rate of births and deaths everywhere,

At any given moment.

I sit in my car watching the sky,

Peering down at the valley.

Then I turn off my headlights

And wonder

Who just died?
