Letters

As children, we used to sit
And play for hours, exchanging
Letters via poems,
Playing with wide ruled paper
With gentle fingers as if to
Fashion the finest origami,
Pretending to be lovers or
Long lost relatives, sending
To each other passages of
A presumed past,
Across cities, time and wars
Or perhaps between
Playground runways and
Pneumatic dreams

We traveled far within those
Tiny blocks south of Sepulveda,
Never writing once, though,
To ourselves and our real
Families, pages on internal
Battles or united fronts
Or untied wounds, all the
Palpable vibrations that
Made the real walls shake, and
Thus, we wrote the day away
And it was pure, blissful
Play
