On the fifth day of dengue the fever dropped
On the eighth day I itched till I cried
On the twelfth day I rested in the Organ Forest.
I took the bus north a while to Teresopolis
Past the pools
Past the mannequins in the plaza
Love and chocolate
Love and chocolate and love
Had a seat
Took a dip
We’re in the Organ Forest
It’s quiet here.
