TIME AND SPACE

Time is against me,1997-040747_pop_yLIhL_16085

but the only thing I have is time

All the rest is

dark

humid

bottomless

 

Space is considerable

but this is not where I wanted to be

All the rest is

an

eternal

minute

 

cords                                                   are                                                   tight

 

tie                                                      these                                                 bones

 

my                                                      people                                               suffer

 

hands                                                  on                                                     flesh

 

to                                                       their                                                  feed

 

wood                                                  own ground?                                       araras

 

…                                                        …                                                      …

 

bruised                                               population                                          out

 

wrists and                                           back                                                   of

 

ankles                                                to                                                      sight

 

pulled                                                state of                                          politicians

 

by                                                     painful                                                 lie

 

gravity                                               survival                                               death
