my dress is red
your heart is pounding
matador de toros
bleeds from your arms into my veins
your eyes flame every soul in Salamanca
your fight is dance
your body burns
the bull is raging
flesh is cracking
roses from my hair fall on your wounds
stars are deaf
eternity is stopping
now I scribble words in lonely Sundays
echoes of bullfights in Salamanca
