One poem is based on my experiences in Rio de Janeiro in June 2010, in a community (some would say favela) called Chacara do Ceu. Roughly translated, it means "little ranch in heaven."
Read "Samba in the Sky" here.
The second poem, "Medusa on Sansome and Pine," is set in San Franciso's Financial District, and features a conflict of perspectives about what it means to be successful.
