I inhale the night, it tangs of mimosa
and sweet loss, towards the east and
dread the birth of days that are now
violent and arid since the women left.
Streets are filled with scowling men who
spend their days shooting holes in a sky
that drips lead on a landscape where
flowers have paled and bird flown away.
Where smiles are frowns upon an empty
lake, songs are a cry in the wilderness.
Now since the women left only their
aroma of mimosa remains.
