Wake Up Paper Man
Wake up and hear my voice!
I am your weightless brother
hiding in your shadow, a drunk kiss,
the nightmare of a god, a spider
in heat. I am the nameless beast
that follows your footsteps,
lethal, absurd. I never believed
In your freedom.
Worship me in altars made of pitchforks and whips.
Wait for me in your dreams,
your tears, your anger.
I’ll wait for you warm and loving
so that together we lower
the curtain of blood and skin.
Take the hand that awaits you
since you lit the first fire
and follow your own forgotten darkness.
