something happened to my right ear

for a while now, instead of singing about the stars

or telling poems about flamenco dancing rhinos

she sits and frowns, lingeringly and ridden.

she spends her evenings watching cheesy movies, sobbing and crying,

and her days sending blue heart letters on crumpled paper planes.

my left foot started complaining too

seems that its heel has fallen in love;

now he can only walk on his toes

and he’s late every day,

and people don’t really want to hear

about unfulfilled love stories

between right ears and left heels.
