something happened to my right ear
for a while now, instead of singing about the stars
or telling poems about flamenco dancing rhinos
she sits and frowns, lingeringly and ridden.
she spends her evenings watching cheesy movies, sobbing and crying,
and her days sending blue heart letters on crumpled paper planes.
my left foot started complaining too
seems that its heel has fallen in love;
now he can only walk on his toes
and he’s late every day,
and people don’t really want to hear
about unfulfilled love stories
between right ears and left heels.
