gentle breeze wraps me

I break away from the smell of food
that crouches like a frightened sparrow
in the corners of the room

the sky is lit by an invisible moon

I shudder to think
time hasn’t moved
the deception I play up to
every night as I look
at the clouds racing in the sky

image of a young girl
watching from the terrace
a moon teasing between the branches
