POETRY: "EXODUS"

"EXODUS" (*)

The day
You landed 
On me 
I bore meteors 
And dust. 
I became
The Moon's Daughter
A second femme fatale
Another cryptic myth.
I was grey and black
Mixed with white. 

You found me 
Half-dead 
Half-naked
Half-human 
And you transformed 
Me.




Now,
I drink the universe 

With a simple glance.
I AM THAT I AM.

(*) The book of Exodus is the second book of the Old Testament. It narrates the escape of the Israelites from Egypt. When Moses encounters God in a burning bush and he asks for His name, God answers: "I AM THAT I AM"
