Wanting – Antonia Salinas Murguia

Coldness sat there moving like jello
and I wanted to touch it,
feel the coldness,
the wonderful coldness
climbing through every sensation
from one single touch
bringing me back to that day
when I was pregnant with my first child
and it was winter
and we were standing by the lake
and I said I have to go in,
but it’s too cold,
I have to go in.

I can feel the whole sensation
looking at the condensation on the glass,
the water inside jello jiggling
making me crazy,
wanting so much to touch the cold wet,
just one single touch.
