Poem: “Lighted”

Nature keeps me encaged
Inside her worker’s elbows
She gaves birth to a fluorescent trail of energy
On my back

Are you still riding the dawn?
Are you still taking your steps across the ocean?
Are you still extending the south of your eyebrows?
Are you still hugging me while I sleep?
Nature gave me all back
Your parfume, your freckles
She gave me back
even your tantrums
the sandals and the pinches
Time gave me a sin
And only then I lived budding
As a cicada in love

And I knock in front of the ant-hills
Hoping they give me a shelter
They’re laughting in my face
And They don’t know
That’s the best gift they can give me
