Οn the squares we were celebrating our first kisses.
When the sun waved love and the wreaths of the earth
put on rings of life.
We were self- sufficient.
But now we are asthmatically clamoring for the present
killing the future
forgetting the past.
Good night I whispered in the depth
 of the senses!

Sogni Giovanili *

Our loins
souls lost in the vortex of our mistakes
in the intensity of youth.
They are struggling to confirm their existence by searching
craving paradise.
The steps quickly make the course difficult.
The mind is the enemy of the rationality.
The soul unprotected in a chase of
self-fulfillment that only creative maturity will incubate.

* Youthful dreams


On the rails of the stations
petty gods
I met eyes lost in the infinity
hands strangled in the fatigue of the day
knights angels
inglorious passers-by.
The continual coming and going accompanies the crowds
and our cages are open.
