Your Body Or a Distant Country
The maps as a fragile truce,
are made of scattered atoms.
To reach your boundaries and touch your skin
I must discover
The burning zones and the shortcuts of the random.
The lubricious compass will expel me
to the center
of the anointed war of love.
I will arrive to lose myself between
the sacredness and the whirlwind.
The ancient spiral of desire
still devouring pulsations.
The heart is an arrow and a target.
Your body is a distant country.
The White Tremor
Today we can tremble
we can whisper
all the pain of waiting
and narrate how we drank the ocean
To find us
Before living in this white room
Were we just a number on this sleep-walking land?
Now we are a city that vibrates with laughter
with the heart in the hands
and our breaths very close.
We can not believe
that today we can tremble
of the other.
