What are you doing?




What are you doing right now?
Burning something in the stove?
Or maybe just being upset about the traffic,
the subways and its stuffiness.

What are you doing right now?
Perhaps walking around in heaven.
I truly hope so,
Or maybe you're just having a bowl of hot soup,
thinking about the ocean and being cool.

What am I doing right now?
Nothing, just stretching my back
taking one day at a time, one drink at a time,
discarding ideas for movies, hugging my dog
and watching novelas with my grandma.
The usual.

You're looking at tall buildings,
weird people,
candy stores and the slow waves of the city,
or maybe lifting weights, taking a million selfies
and denying your age.

Maybe you are in heaven, maybe you didn't make it.

I'm missing a world I knew,
my teeth showing themselves to others,
or just a hot meal under a tree in Salcedo.

Maybe I'm just old and haven't grown up yet.

But seriously, what are you doing right now?
