Ephemeral

fingers-hand-leaf-petals

Superfluous,

Like the “I love you”

that a man says

when he raises his hand in front of his wife.



Usless,

like the caress that comes

after that the same hand

has marked her cheek.

Confused,

the show of affection

that the man offers

when he gives her a bucket of flowers.

Painful,

when the woman decides

that she can’t take it no more,

and not knowing how,

decides to get away from the husband.

Risky,

running from him,

having him

knocked her

to prove who is the dominant

and who is the dominated.
