The 2nd Floor


Shakened by an evil dream
Twin boys holding me down
I can; t escape their cluthes
Held down a pillow on my head
My screams go unheard
Then they are gone

My body shacken to it's core
I run down the stairway
But i'm still on the second floor
Down stairway, agin 2nd floor

I run into the bedroom
My girlfriend yelling at me
But she has no head
Up the stairway i run
Into my bed i jumped
A cold touch on my face
My dog's nose wakes me up
It's time for her walk
We walk as my body trembles

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
