Everything Is Going Down


Winter is coming and everything is falling

Only the night is getting fuller and fuller

The pupils of the luminous sky are clear

They are apparently unharmed by fear

But humans are knocked back to their origin by the virus

Which looks for any weak body it can attack

Furious lips and teeth add to the confusion

Desire bends the path of light

The image of a world wrapped in roses

Covers its vast ugliness of reality,

A deception called prosperity.





Destruction Is the Highest Art  

 Facing the dim waves


Spring has been destroyed, summer is on its way


The lives fell for the earth have not held spring tightly


The daisies are spreading out the altar


More than three hundred thousand lives in the last four months


Like the branches and leaves destroyed by a strong wind




Is the earth shaking?


Wife lost husband, child lost parents


How to sew the torn bone?


The breathing lungs, the virus' shelters


Fear is just the thunder on a sunny day


The sun still spins overhead in daytime




Crematoriums, eyes, ideologies


All is not true, breathing is still breathing


Shrouds, the vultures became the winners


Reality, Ecuador's streets are full of dead bodies


Corpse loading vehicle and living people are sharing the same space in America


It's not a magic novel. The tongues full of gunpowder


can't change the powerful killing alien races




Rambling Cronus, please come back to the center of Justice


You can't be higher than ants, butterflies, even cockroaches


Small creatures sneak into the leather bag for food


Dust swept away by wind, has no number


We are used to cheating our brains with beauty


From birth to accept the anti reality,  illusion of fog


Pan American vocabulary constructs self happiness scene




Where has the Muses gone


Poetry can't break the shackles of soul


Destruction has become the highest art


The dew of breath will not praise the vultures who eat people


They try to occupy space with human beings


Strong wind breeds excellent painters


God of peace, please comfort the bleeding chests!




Money and power blind eyes


Prayer blinds wisdom


or some other unopened words


Who is promoting blood to squeeze out the whitening sky


Red and white are competing


Maybe white makes it possible to be longer


You know "water", the cosmic soul


All of you are just a flash of light




Time Is An Eye Penetrating Consciousness


Who knows that the unknown has no love

unless the soul destroys itself

no matter how many raindrops fall

from the clouds into the sea.

When the lips are full of angry portraits

then time is an eye penetrating consciousness.
