A COLD MESSAGE
The word has a thousand wings filled with fear. How can I see? Love of the earth is not enough, it is necessary to the complete freedom. Yes, when time has a wing trembling, and the place has a foot walking, then I will gather my breath, like a bouquet of flowers smiling for the near future. Here the word freezes, needing other poetry, to a body that trembles. My words are cold message. Thorns permeate me. I reproduce in the fields of language as a harsh tent. I am still inferior. Language is searching for new sailors, no, the sun is no longer enough to symbolize freedom. The distance holds me, I am still stuck to the ground; my words feel cold and my limbs freeze like trains inhabited by snow travelers.
