sweet smell of chaos

i havent seen anyone for days

the air stinks,
the streets are dead silent.

sometimes the troops
can be heard
and it all sounds fishy.

i still can't believe it's happening.

before the crisis,
meeting someone
seemed like a dream

it appears it's all it took.

we share baths
and tuna cans

she puts flowers
inside my mask

and together
we sing our love loud
beneath the passing planes.

Born in 1995 in Montreal, Pancy Rush moved from houses to houses
before flying to Rosario, Argentina. At the age of 16, he was offered a
professional contract to play soccer in the Castilian city. However, it is
after 2 years spent under the sun that he realized what his true passion
was. His first and most natural way of expressing, which is writing,
writing poetry. With now 2 manuscripts written, Pancy takes the time
needed to make it happen.
