This poem by José Angel Araguz originally appeared in Apply Valley Review: A Journal of Contemporary Literature.

José Angel Araguz comments on "Canicas":
I fear being one of the last generations to play with marbles. This isn’t a statement of nostalgia or one bemoaning how times change. I mean simply in terms of the reference of the game and the scene. These days, birds fly over our cell phone screens without us noticing.
