Use Your Breath

Use your breath to know you are immortal.
Understand how starlight opens the leaves.
The ants are streaming.
Someone is dreaming
with his eyes open to the moon.
The worm eats half its home
to let the palm tree grow from a window.
When the morpho descends
not a single leaf bends,
and from its body emerges
the woman that converges
with the light
entering and leaving your mouth.
