Every single glass of wine
celebrate louder than the previous one,
just to outshout the storm
behind the dirty glass of the old window

but when there’s a power cut
everything subsides,
the glasses stop singing drunken songs
thoughts fall asleep
and dream of Spanish speech

after every word the wine
goes back to its homelands
amidst desert and olive groves,
the skin absorbs deeply
the aroma of orange blossoms,
underneath the eyelids timelessness roads are moving,
where the only companion is the wind,
you do not need a hard hat
nor purpose,
this night you will
pitch your tent
under the pink truth of the sunset
