Later that day
His head appeared
From under a blanket.
He didn’t yawn
Or rub his swollen eyes.
He didn’t get up or stretch his stiff limbs.
He didn’t take a piss and brush his teeth.
He was lying
And just lying.
What is the meaning of his lying?
Earlier that day
“Body is there
to carry me.
do I know
I am body”
On her mobile phone.
What did she want to say?
They were sitting on a retaining wall
Exchanging poetry on their cellphones
Starting to feel hungry.
She touched his belly demonstratively and it gurgled.
He paused, thinking.
He placed his hand on her waist
And his ear on her chest:
What was it that he saw?
Listen now, dumbass.
My head appeared from under a blanket
I am lying
And though I see her waving at me
And hear her snapping her fingers
And feel her hands grabbing me by the shoulders
I am just lying
And this is yet another moment when
We don't exist.
This poem means we do not exist, you get it now?
