Dawn, I’ve just arrived and I need your guidance.
My face is now damp by your dew
and so my lips can move again.
Through my nostrils your air feels like a medicine
trying to reach my heart still sleeping.
Your light cuts houses and trees out of the sky,
sets me in between them, tells me to Go!
Dawn, I recognise you, we’ve been playing this game for years:
You wake me up, you kiss me, you tell me your name.
I won’t forget you Dawn, goodbye.
