Temperatures
 

The sun will have put
Her foot in the door
It will have found a way
To shatter the cold
Faster than us and
In a more elegant manner
For sure, the sun has
Hot yellow heels

In the backyard it´s summer
For a moment at least, balls
And time suspended, flying
Through the air, meeting bodies
Jumping and hitting objects
Frozen in the warmth before
They feel defeated by
The temperature

Resistance has never been
Easy, neither in war, nor in love
Maybe I should call my granny
Before the sun sets and the lights
Stop caressing my face, maybe
I should turn four years again and
Just run around with the brightest
Smile like I´ve never broken a leg
(Haven´t) nor heart (have)

Well, the sun, it´s the one who
Leaves traces and freckles your
Skin if you´re just like me, like me
Or not, this is just one of the things
Configurations, some of the magic
That happens casually, to look
In a mirror and find yourself
Beautiful, next to someone

Who might know how to juggle
Your soul, acrobat, but what if
It´s just you, sitting next to you?
But what if the balls fall, what if
We run out of question marks

How do you like your company
I ask myself and my phone rings
And I answer and say, hi, I´ve
Been waiting for you to call
It´s so nice to hear from you
And in the backyard it´s summer
For a moment at least, everything
Glowing, the sun has yellow heels

What is the fusion point
What is the freezing point
Of poems

What is the temperature of
All thoughts suspended

Landmark (Blue)
 

With her hand she waved
Away the water and
Cut the sea in slices

So delicate you could see
The origin of the world
Between her legs, the ocean

Spread out again and took
Away every word that had
Been lurking there

For centuries
And never been and never heard
Spoken by a female voice

A woman

Her finger cut into the lucid flesh
Of the sky, drawing a sweet spot
False rib, a shoulder

Blade, to lean on to
A monument of

Bone, boner
Bonest is no
Admissible form

Limited vocabulary
Extended vocabulary

A woman
She writes

A contract
In the blue of the sea
Every day, to all

Eternity

That she may create
