CAN SOMEONE BRING ME MY ENTIRE BEING? – Can someone bring me my entire being? My arms, my eyes, my face? I am a river flowing into the wrong sea, if only someone could restore me to the desert. Life goes on but I want no more from it than my childhood, my firefly, my doll. My vision does not admit this new season, take me back to my old dream. Of finding one face among the many in my city whose eyes can read deep into me. My life has been a boat in a whirlpool for so long. O god, please let it sink or drift back to the desert.
