#13 – Las Manos


It was silent
Like the graves we got drunk by
It was cold
Like the tombs we crept by
It felt like a miracle
The most beautiful sound
I’d ever heard
It was boundless
Like the ocean your mother drowned in
It was warm
Like my voice against your face
And your hand on my chest
It was sung
And i heard it somehow
Although i was deaf
It was also the first time
The world gained color
Before my very eyes
