The most beautiful man I ever saw

was a man in a book.
Mauricio Babilonia
remains in my eyes,
long after the words
that made him, fade,
he is still there with
his yellow butterflies,
as light as tears that
formed his fate, that
burning like embers
ran down his cheek,
'nd like words held
him in iron fetters -
Mauricio Babilonia
of the unopened letters.
