The light sees us with our-own eyes
with open heavens and hands reaching for God
without keys and lines the notes are singing in us
lifting the chest of the man
that exhale us
the universe creates perfect music in us
when we feel that we are not alone
with the time’s rain drops
and a chamomile tea bag
I washed out all of the pain
that lived on the lower jaw
under that street
with unriped and loud conifers rolling on her body
my breathing stayed imprisoned
among the iron rails
of the days without a name
I had bitten the apple only once
and I got pinched by the word from the pentagram inside
and from the tree up above your head
I told you that you are nude
and that you don’t need anybody
and that you can give birth to Adam all by yourself, now
and I gave you leaves so you could imprison yourself in a cage
in walnut shell – with transparent synapses
