Portraits alongside

I sing the death of remembering
not belonging

to the absence of longing forever
for a place in the placenta

I sing in the mist
under the night in pieces

portraits alongside the spirit
woven by a cloak of esteem

I sing
to nobody

the empty road is my burden

of jasmines on the shade

inside me
scents disguised
in gardens
give off contentment.
