Adolescence

His pants, loose, still warm from his body,

hanged off a nail on the wall; pants emptied

off his body.               

                     He got up, barefoot,

touched it absentmindedly with his hand, feeling

that he touched a strange body without fear or

as if a stranger was touching him; he closed

his eyes and listened to the panting of the night

outside.
