PARASITES
Alfonsina Storni

I never thought that God had any form.
Absolute the life; and absolute the norm.
Never eyes: God sees with the stars.
Never hands: God touches with the seas.
Never tongue: God speaks with sparkles.
I will tell you, don’t be startled;
I know that God has parasites: things and men.
