Lend Me Your Coat
Lend me your coat for the cold Sun.
Let’s steal a few rays and bury them
Between bones stuffed in nostrils,
For the hallowing wind takes no breaks…
Lend me your coat for your shadow that's free.
Mine is thin, fragile, too weak.
Let’s steal a few pebbles and ingest them.
For hunger feeds on my barren skin,
While a trick—a nip can save me still…
Lend me you coat to shower myself in your odor,
To confiscate from your pockets small bundles of memory.
Worn-out tissue papers, forgotten bills, change you never cared for,
And leave on your buttons, the stamp of me…
Lend me your coat for winter has the audacity to crush my blossom.
Let’s pray for a cloud, pregnant with star dust instead of rain.
And follow it where hope has cracked and rage fueled in,
Let’s watch it, get drenched in magic, let’s witness it win…
