Lukewarm

B

From room A to room L to room B,

Looking forward to the afterglow of the A to compare the B.

I prefer to wait knowing the time of passage

I prefer to wait in the sun

From room A to room B to room A,

The temperature cycle of the ambient air, my body, my breathing changes.

I prefer lukewarm air because hot air makes me sweat my hands

I prefer warm air because cold air makes me shiver

From room A to room B to room A,

Stack the minutes like bricks, move through the space with your hands

I prefer lukewarm water because cold water freezes my teeth

I prefer lukewarm water because hot water burns my tongue

From room L to room L to room L,

Waiting room, Waiting room, waiting room

The wait is always lukewarm because time becomes action

The wait is always lukewarm because it will not decide your time.

From A toLukewarm B,
