An Animal Resembling Desire

An Animal Resembling Desire

Under an undecided bird

the day whines about orphanhoods,

clouds of absence hurting

a dark putrid silence.

One by one the city awakens 

its dead under a tired sky

to offer the waters 

of its most recent words.

An animal resembling desire  

extends its laborious wings to petriphy

the only tree that remains standing. 

Under fear's silhouette 

infancy picks up its waist

and places it on a stone blind wall.

Under desperation leaves

a god made of solitudes 

forces the clouds 
to rain punishments

and transform boulders 
into jaguars.
