To her I am danger – to him I am irrelevant. To her I am the first – to him a sunshine. To them I am curious-to us I am useful- to he I am a student – to him I am an ass. To that I am an icon – to them I am a voice. To he I am a groomer – to them I am a nuisance – to her I am a savior – to her I am a demon. To it I am a lover- to that I am a wizard.
To the experience-I am an architect – to the olive, I am an eater. To the Bourbon with two cubes of ice, I am a worshipper of time. To the sweater I am stuffing-to the road I am kin-to the desert I am a pilgrim-to silence I am a devotee. To hygiene I am a rebel -to the unborn I am a chosen void -to lineage I am an escapist. To the city I am a virgin-to the mountains I am a beginner-to Love I am food-To God I am, I am.
To her I am danger – to him I am irrelevant. To her I am the first – to him a sunshine. To cigarettes I am a quitter – to them, I am curious.
