Mato Grosso do Sul

She has already bought her ticket

and she tells me she’ll fly out of Frankfurt

beginning of March

talking about Bonito and the farm

reminding me of hot days spend in

Sidrolandia talking about travelling

drinking tereré

being bored

sitting on cliffs looking out

over Mato Grosso do Sul

and I have no particular interest in

doing it all over again

But somehow I feel the desire to

Be back in Campo Grande

Reminiscing of what I once had

where the papaya trees would grow

in gardens

and the araras fly in sky

and you would walk up and down

the streets

and me too

sometimes together

But mostly apart
