NOCTURNO

My body is a book — full of scribbles
my friends write down all the events there
with pencils, river water, gadgets, coffee shops
social media, cinemas, and many more
I don’t even have a slit to write my life story on my own body
but yea, never mind
after all, people won’t care
except what they want to write on my body
once upon a time I just followed a bird’s invitation
fly and sing at the top of the tree
here is more free, he said
from a distance I get goose bumps watching my body
get blackened full of scribbles.

I don’t even have a slit to write my life story on my own body
but yea, never mind
after all, people won’t care
except what they want to write on my body
once upon a time I just followed a bird’s calling
to fly and sing at the top of the tree
here is more free, he said
away from a distance I get goose bump watching my body
get filled full of scribbles.
