The crow swings on a branch
and reverberates the air
a few times in a row,
swaying its own being.
I’ve the impression that if I could fly,
I would have a hard time choosing which tree
to land, or what kind of weight is needed
when arriving at my destination.
In a life of predestined branches,
I’m the kind who undresses in winter
just to feel the warmth of leaves caressing my skin,
revisiting the warmth of body
being emptied of seasons.
