Symmetry asked me which side I liked better. I regretted my choice and the deliberate waste of time, debited from my life. I wrinkle in the search for the definite, the ultimate and the final. Every victory opens the door to a new kind of suffering and it never ends. I know I'll keep trying [...]

Refined-sugar hourglass

Sugar slips down this hourglass protected inside shimmering bulbs, counting down my possibilities as I run out of sweetness. Mellow crystals of the past: My coffee is bitter and dark. But I swear I’ll wait grain by grain for your last time travelers to get in line, and smash your cowardice against this wall. And [...]

Duties were tormenting me like Tetris pieces raining at an impossible speed. I made chamomile tea, and waited for the “GAME OVER” sign. A man with no face went to the edge of chaos once I fell asleep. He demanded a blanket from the winter, a song from Mercury, and a smile from me. And [...]

I. An entire structure collapsed at the vibration of his lips asking why three times in a row. Not much remained of what had been the most beautiful place that I didn't want to inhabit. The expectations of a mother covered by debris, the pressure of peers now pushing against blinding light. "Oops," he said. "Never mind, I'll build [...]

The wink

Freedom rejected your advances with the subtlety of a lady, fooling you into thinking that all you had to do to get her company was to avoid being a follower. And as your confidence grew, she increased the distance by turning you into a leader. You forgot how roads get rid of some idiots by stepping down [...]

My mind zoomed in but it all became pixelated and even harder to understand. "You need more resolution, not a closer look," he said. "Whoa, what the fuck! You know what I'm thinking?" "You're not thinking, you're zooming in an out like an idiot."

The trap

I saw a life inflamed by its own pointing finger. A finger leader of inaction and of a compliant mouth that repeated commanded words which found their place inside a cage of unquestioned synapses. The words forgot their purpose. They crossed curiosity off their list of curiosities. I saw a finger falling into the trap [...]

Of course not

You shaped with words what your efforts never intended to touch. "Here," you said, "I hope this helps," and handed me a useless confusion of intangible nonsense, like a stupid "you're enough" jpg in some beautiful typography. I always let words secretly rob me of hope and time when my reserves are already depleted. But [...]

Forever young

The ice melted, the sugar dissolved. Both faded and got lost in the red liquid of my glass, in the red liquid of my core. Who cares about the conservation of mass, when time decides to do the same to my ass? Maybe I got this wrong, but I tried the Buddhists' advice of staying [...]

Hand in hand

I wished I could walk around the rainbow and get a glimpse from an angle. I despised the frontal view, I didn't want to face the blue. So I walked and walked, always hoping for some change and when I looked at the colors it was always the same range. The next thing I remember [...]
