strange days, these are

By Miguel Juárez

contesting emotions

the haze of uncertainty

dogs run free against blue sky

measured steps, chosen words

she cried unknown tears

said because it wasn’t love

but some intense passion

dogs run free against blue sky

expectations in the dance

like an insect caught in sweet amber

the harder he tries to break free

the deeper he sinks

dogs run free against blue sky

addicted to a certain cure

and he wanted to

but the words intervened

strange days, these are
