Today, the cars, too, are dancing

by Filipa Leal

Today, the cars, too, are dancing. The houses are moving gently. And I – who moved house, changed clothes, city and bed, words… I, who changed my music and my car, my longing, bedroom… I – who changed computer and street, landscape and eternity, climate and embrace… I – who changed tears and language, god and notebook, beliefs and sky… I – who changed flame, fears… I – who changed plans, bedsheets, desk… I – who changed my glasses and direction, friends, shampoo, rituals and supermarket… I – who changed everything which changed almost nothing, moved from inside of me to inside of you, my love.
