Transfer
transferring
trans.ferir.se
slowly 
in several directions. 
Dimensions 
find the common source (of all pains) 
gather and dilute: water 
open and close my eyes 
as who opens a rift
to let flow off
inside and outside (always) little by little
with no direction
try to find the balance
between strength and vulnerability
expressing and printing: body 
open and close my eyes 
as a balance (accepting the pendulum). 
And let me flood 
And continue 
And repeat 
And count drops.
as someone who wishes and pours liquid brands
time memorie life
And continue:
(again) open and close my eyes 
insisting, 
moving through the water 
– of tears. 
Go 
And back.
