The barefoot mirror screams,

      hug me

         i'm dying!

 look at their roots

     its environment

         her footprints



 I understand



          it is



And The Coffee Does Not Run Out


A coffee today was not enough

to silence the nostalgia,

you sat with me

and we mourned your absence,

the sky helped,

the raindrops

camouflaged the tears

the neurons cried

the eyes

the lips

the heart

and even the soul...


—The soul that knows patience

of waiting

of flowing

from seeing me so much,

also cried, she cried.


Sip by sip

the cup overflowed,

the bitter sweet

was lost in the salt


and the sky is still raining

as my eyes are still raining

my neurons

my mouth

my hands

my soul...


Sit with me

to mourn your absence

that time has stopped

and the coffee does not end ...


Mulieres In Albis


Silent are the cries

of deformed letters

which seek to emerge

from forgotten grottos,

ancient chapels

raised over our sacred stones.


Cries that mingle




of childish rains

of furious torments,

of imprisoned electricity,

of sparkling flashes,

and majestic thunderclaps.


The message arrives

the apprentice gets up

the shofar sounds

and the witches’ coven emerges

with white garments,

sweet-smelling herbs,

and the wise words

of our grandmothers… like armaments.


Ready… with the iron-heart,

the armament of tulle

but strong as titanium,

bravely waves our standard

made of skin, dew, hair

gathered from the roadside

of every experience of ours.


Experiences which today remind us

that they were necessary,

passing through open fire

in order that wings may be born,

grow and expand,

sustaining the ideals

which today flow

like open streams.
