A Robert.

He arrived with vines of hair
brown and ocher
their cracterísticas.

Soft-spoken and deliberate
no retouching of any kind.

Africa hot Earth,
strident in their veins
steel muscle
and moist eyes.

His embrace no time to stay.

He talks a lot, as if to violate
my ears, with their secret weapons.

There was no time to savor his shadow
was a covenant of silence,
without prior agreement.
