What is a heart, when all the world is dead?
The sound of letters dropped
will not revert the time.
And what’s a line without a drop of ink,
when all of us have reached the closed horizon?
I do not see my own hands, in mud,
as I am neatly seated in abyss,
nor I can talk about the summer days
(they’ve never been arranged or bricked
in any way).
What is my eye without the face I knew
(reflected on the path), if not the shadow
of a burn in your shirt.
And Dante, arh the liar him, what would he be today,
without the greatness of the sacred cloth,
if nobody had thought,
before the word, to reinvent inferno
in simple fragments of repeated hours?
The longer days make now the clouds look longer,
the thunder keeps the burning town awake,
immortals on the porch,
define the only emptiness which cannot live in books.
The sudden closure of my tiny palms.
