Mimic Octopus
Heli Colmenares Nov 2016

its swimming there
in plain sight

its hiding here its hiding there
the mimic octopus

Every Flavored Jelly Beans
Heli Colmenares Nov 2016
Harry Potters every flavored jelly beans life is
rainbow eggs crowding the bowl
they taste weird
they are piles of dirt
so unexpected
“[they are] like a box of chocolates”
I don't know what the colors mean
they say they are lime, but i think they are apple
I now know they were grass
life will always confuse me

Barcelona
Heli Colmenares Nov 2016
The busy streets flowing like water.
The friendly smiles walk past.
All of it works in unison.
stores, heat, clockwork.
The whole city itself works like a bee hive.
I wish i could live there forever.

Extinction
Heli Colmenares Nov 2016
The sky was dark and full of ash
the fields are all on fire.
The rocks landed with a big crash
‘been running now I'm tired.


The world went dark, the food is spent,
there’s nothing left for me.
My herd ran off and I was left.
And now I cannot see.


The world is black, the ash is strong,
the heat makes me feel faint.
I cannot hear the other songs,
can’t breathe without complaint.


I stumble far but cannot think
of how it all must look.
I feel the death, I’m on the brink,
this whole world just shook.


I’m all alone, I cannot feel
I yell, no one can hear.
I lay there, shed my final tear,
and slowly fall asleep.

Mindalithian
Heli Colmenares May 2012
This is a Mindalithian
Mindalithians live in marvelous mansions
with mischievous children in Minnesota
Midalithians eat mounds of mac-n-cheese,
meaty meatballs, and magicians
Mindalithians like metallic mushroom
and mega marshmallows
Mindalithians make magnificent magic, meditates mellowly
and marches with mops
this Mindalithian taught me magical meditations
and made me march as a mop
