We had everything

We had everything

but in a different abundance.

A whole that was not a full,

not a big one, not even a whole –

It was a fluorescent whole

like those flying bars they sell at night.


Because we also had time

but we were scarcely touched by clocks’ seconds.

It was a time that rhymed with the word –

an interesting time that did not interest him



and sometimes

it was a very specific fear,

the one amongst the noises,

aware that everything would happen

and eventually

it would pass, far more terrible than death,

much more painless than oblivion.

We had everything
