with bandages waving instead of the wings
even the sun has glued a patch on the chin…
until you

and has healed my fears, the ghosts and the promise
(made by myself in the mirror) that I will be the best
But now I’m limping, though unjustified, in some way like a tic
I try to keep my word … with both hands
