Mental Contact

One paper, two notes
two words
they are enough ...
The estrus shy kid in the corner.
Innocence is lost as the time contract expands.
The rain refreshes the grass
and the pure childlike soul thirsts for learning.

I Feel You

You sneak through the glittering windows.
You swirl on classic wooden structures.
I've imagined you on lonely evenings,
on solitary walks,
with unanswered rhetorical questions.
The rinsing of the rain will resurrect the delusional heartbeats
and the soul will be lifted by the weight of the inner flood.


Dew drops are our hopes.
The time is running out suffering in the present.
The sighs dry in the sun of justice.
Empty wagons the thoughts.
Heretical the reflections.
And this impatience disturb the line of reasoning.
The odes sound.
The time has come!


This light in the crevice ...
affirms courage
Demand curve looking for a way out.
The grilles are smuggled in
Like the night trains with the curious travellers.
The weight of silence spreads.
Redeemer and detector
into the illusion of an attractive
that fascinates you.
You surrender
You are proclaimed a sovereign revolutionary!


Our dreams have been shattered.
They could not stand to suffer on a lonely canvas.
They crossed the land border
to paint the youth of the world
with indelible intellectual touches
The borders inaccessible, unattended.
The common zone in protest.
The single market grinning in our demands.
and the “New Laws” * are struggling to break the boundaries of time
groping our wounds ...

*The term “New laws” refers to the fourth and final part of Justinian's legislative work
