Leaves

Yes! Yes! Yes!
30 minutes are enough, I guess.
to take off this mask,
to take off these colors
with which
I have covered my face
and painted myself,
30 minutes will do, I guess.

Yes! 30 minutes are enough
to recall what has passed,
to remember how you looked,
how you smelled,
to remember the times
I kept you high
when you were to tired to rest,
Yes! 30 minutes are enough, I guess.

Yes! 30 minutes will do,
so take my hand and let me lead you–
there, where you were you
and I was I
each time I looked at you.
Yes! 30 minutes will do
to look, to stare at you,
before I forget me, and you forget you.
