3 sisters finally decide to start a war

they buy yellow smoke bombs
and travel to a snowy field
where they see an old man’s home in the distance.

they study history books
which contain the stories they never told their therapist.

they dismantle their guns.

they put on balaclava helmets
and take deep breaths out each other’s

the yellow clouds grow
and at last the sisters begin to cry.

margaritas grow in the grass.

all i want is the moon upon a stick

Monelle advised us to destroy everything that surrounds us
so that we could make room for our souls.

so i decided to destroy my suitcase.
i decided to destroy the possibility of seeing you in a Nike cap.
i decided to destroy the airplane emoji i was about to send you.
i decided to destroy the time zone difference
through a fast in which all i ate was mdma
from the tips of your fingers.

Perra basica.

i’m living inside a whale
eating only milk and toast

and when i pour myself some milk and spill,
all the mothers i’ve digested come out
and smack me and apologize
for having spent their whole lives in bed
inside the body of an animal

same thing happens with soy milk

same thing happens when i make a mistake

same thing happens when you don’t hand me a tissue to wipe
the milk off my face

and there is so much sand outside,
it’s a land of palm beaches
and bananas
that i can’t see, because i’m living inside a whale

if i lived inside a jellyfish
i would be trying to communicate
something to you about electricity
and hara-kiri.
