Night COOLING

The night finally came
but no hurricane
The sweat drop by drop
was falling on my laptop

Fuck it is hot
waiting for the cooling
let me get in

I think about Texas
where in the atlas
the day are hot
the nights are ice
desert
inert
the clay drying
me falling
finally sleeping
the road melting
metal
to hot
just need
cooling

Fuck it is hot,
waiting for the cooling
let me get in

Greek birds are flying
but not in the air
that wouldn’t be fair
staying on the ground
looking for the heat
they hit the stones
still hot
good spot
the birds
loving
are just cooling

Fuck it is hot,
waiting for the cooling
let me get in

The sand mingles
but not single
giving the tone
becoming stone

Fuck it is hot,
waiting for the cooling
let me get in

Gaëlle Leenhardt, 2020
