Lodgers without body heat

lodgers without body heat




Close the all windows and doors, shut out cold air and sound of rain. Pale sky shines on the corpses of lodgers by the window, like a new powder layer of their skin. I had many lodgers through the windows and doors in summer – butterfly, bee, mosquito, moth, lady bug, fly, dragonfly and many other winged bugs – and some of them left their bodies here. Touching the corpses with my fingers and I do not feel their body heat. Did they have it when they were alive?

I am not a “settled” person in a certain place so I keep moving to different places like butterflies follow brighter points. The lodgers have gone and I will be gone, too. It is time to think of new life and breaking away from this presence.
