Chiroptera

love-4

You showed the whole world
How easy it is to blind me

Hang me upside down
And feed me little by little

With a fruit, whose palpitations
Make a little echo that I gravitate to

My wings afloat, heart in flutter
And hind limbs in motion.

A little feeling dancing inside
Ushering in a little rise in the decibels

And some centigrades. When kerosene trails
Were paved in memory and a flame

That got lost, extinguished,
By the wind in our bodies.
