WE WERE OBLITERATED

They never teach us
why the mind wanders

SCORES OF THOUGHTS AND A PIGEON

the pole outside my dorm
houses an interesting bird.
the last day of last week, six days before yesterday,
there was no rain.
the sun was smiling shyly at us
and the pigeon
sat on her nest
on top the ùdará tree,
across the road.
the day i had scheduled a coffee date for yesterday,
i was reading a book
that i didn't find interesting.
but i read on, all of it.
and the pigeon was on my roof
shuffling harmlessly all night.
on the day, long before yesterday
all we wanted to do was
scream our lungs out
and pretend we were grownups.
the pigeon,
was nowhere in sight.
no, i'm mistaken:
i did see the pigeon and
she was staring
at me. blankly.
today began forever ago
and we've been patient.
today the rain forgot to pour
after i felt a drop on my nose
today there are no clouds
and we were unaware
today the sun is indifferent
but she blushed at sunset
today i have found no interesting books
and i gave up looking

today i didn't want to scream
i only whispered 
today I didn't …

THE INTERVIEW

I look at the grey heart-shaped clock on the wall in front of me. The time is 1:20pm. The black tie is getting too tight on my neck. I release the knot a bit. My palms are clammy and sweaty. My forehead must be beaded with sweat.

WHERE WE WERE LOOKING

When she wasn't looking
she grew,

3:54

3:54
three fifty four
questions
and one,
none answered.

INBETWEEN

In between circles of confusing chaotic mumbles
please at least grant me a peaceful night rest
and save me the fight with my soul
me, myself and I or the silhouetted fantômes
of undead troubles lashing
out before me
