Hammocks for Hobos by Sergio A. Ortiz

Build the sunrise,

go from one side to the other

like eternal oscillating strangers

wandering from bed to bed.

Airports, exceptional tickets

to → the scenery.

Adventures expire every third day.

The guy in room 1411

consumes dreams.

No matter how much

a dragonfly flies

it never becomes a bird.

Tourist are just nostalgia.
