((12) Breakfast With Diamonds - Poem by Luis Gil de la Puente

A cold shower
Is a good way
To open my eyes.

I wake up with the stare
of those clean weightless
compasionate eyes,
filling me with motionless
sweet energy.

Peace, wide forehead,
translucient skin
of your huge eyed look,
Amelia.

I wish you could feel the diamonds.

    That sure is one hell of an analogy.

    Showering has never been so thought of. I'm impressed. t x
