become the trembling that protects me
for a moment
then turn into ash.
and dance inside this body
like flames hidden inside a lit cigarette.
we both know nothing!
this, we know.
like children giving birth to children
who nothing knew
in the same way, without a direction,
we are lost too.
only trails of smoke and flames and ice to chase
leaking from our masks to reflect upon this world
the things this world lacks.
shivering, cold, pale,
I too, will follow you.
