author website

Dear Friends and Fam,

I just launched my official author website.  I'm so excited! Please take a look around and when you click on my meme it shows you a clip of one of my performances at the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe.
Hope you like it and share away...

first frost

frost
on grass
like broken
glass
twinkling
in the AM
hesitantly
waiting
for my
lens
lens.

first frost in Cali.  2017, Stella Santamaria

Mi Amiguis

Mi Amiguis, My friend

excerpt of poem
dedicated to: Ericka

singing in the car
going to the gym
then let's eat "healthy"
clinking wine goblets
make sure they shine
people watching
in

SoBe
The Mile
Key West

friends
agreeing
disagreeing
agreeing

last minute plans

a friend like Ericka

Mi Amiguis

old soul

she calmly said
change
and I'll wash
your jeans

when Chloe
sat on my lap
and peed on me

ssssssssssssss

disaster averted

with poolside
chats

rants
laughs

with friends
that's
so funny
so funny

My "planner"
grading party
partner

Erickita.
Another day in Miami Beach. 2017, Stella Santamaria

the hand at the end of
my vision was yours
always yours.

Dedicated to:  Mauricio, my love.

Visitor in Lavatory Last Night*

Your Visitor is in the Lavatory Tonight
from my  poetry book "In Between Spaces - Miami"

Your Visitor in the Lavatory

how appropriate

did he crawl
out of the toilet
this time
stanky damp musty fur

wonder

did he slither
from under the door
ssssssssssss

he couldn't materialize
nor manifest

Your Visitor in Lavatory

reeks of car dung
inflamed overused veins

blood traced out

long clocks dang

iceyness
nothingness
emptiness
remains
