The Wind-Men


(Poem dedicated to all homeless people in the world).


They walk around us

we smell their smell

we hear their footsteps

but we don't see them.

They are like us

just a little more alone



They are windmen


who live in alleys of solitude

and indifference.

Made of the same substance

of the wind

that we hear, breathe

but we are too busy

to see them and help them.

We're just squalid stones

that roll

between time portals

and folds of everyday life

as we approach that ravine

who will guard us all.

The wind men instead

when they die

they will get rid of their burdens

they will wear butterfly wings

and they will fly joyfully and dancing

on green meadows

fed by eternity.


Light Up The Stars For Me.


Light up the stars for me

I hate all this darkness

I need the light

to see me

and still feel alive.

I live on a dark planet

in the midst of a people

blind and deaf

inhuman beings

without soul, heart

and not even a crumb of love.

That's why every night

on my bed

I cry

I raise my eyes to the sky

and I scream:

"please light up the stars for me."


The Cult Of The God Facebook


Oh big and mighty Facebook,

here prostrate in front

to this screen

cold and flat

I sincerely thank you

for making me back

a better person

it is thanks to you

if I became a poet,

philosopher and sage.

I have many virtual friends

but when I walk

on the street I feel alone

because for everyone

I become a ghost.

Forgive please

my unbridled voyeurism

and that photo posted

while vomiting in the bathroom

or while I choose

the color of the next briefs.

Finally I thank you,

and I will always do it,

to have taught me

which is easier

and more beautiful share than to be.
