UNIMPUTABLE ("INIMPUTÁVEL")

UNIMPUTABLE ("INIMPUTÁVEL")

.

.

What if my hands suddenly, very

suddenly weighed on your waist.

If you turned around, surprised,

and your eyes found, up close, my

mouth mutely asking for yours...

What if your gaze drowned in mine;

if there was a silence greater,

much greater than clock and traffic.

.

If, finally, after words pick-

ed up from the floor, my hand

was on the back of your neck, tender,

and my hug involved you, strong,

unforeseen, and somehow so friendly

robbed you from the heels and

the sense: just robbed you:

a girl, a woman, unimputable.
