Poem: Les Mots that I lack

By: Desirée Jung

les moto

Quando aprendi a falar
estrangeiro
I was amazed by the strangeness
Inhabiting my corpo,
inside me.

As palavras take emotions
That search and do not find.

São suspiros ininterruptos
Surfacing my skin.

São camadas de ar,
That explode in the flesh.
