Guadalajara, Mexico

I hear you walking in soft pajamas late at night. Touching every room with your feet. In the morning you ask me to cancel the movers. Only by now I've gone deep inside, to the tender parts, the skin around my eyes. Once, when visiting family in Mexico, a sea sand, little stones that seemed attached to no one, she led me to a hedge of flowers that when touched, closed.
