Necessity is the mother of invention

recites an old adage,

so I bow before the strength of the fragile,

so thin under the weight of the cross

scattered at random from genetic alterations

or by blind fate that one day could kiss me.

They will certainly wait for you ditches and hollows,

confusing roundabouts, spiral stairs and steep descents...

 Yet it is not in you the obstacle to the goal,

 It is in the subjunctive of the indifferent

in the litanies of the perhaps

and in if he could,

but he has a melodious voice of the wingless sparrow...



As A Rolled Roll





Hunted down.

She was weightless.

 In her mind Christmas toys,

when she took off

to slip hand rests of imaginary stairs.

She photographed the scene

that still comes to her mind

as a rolled roll of folds of the past.



The Weight Of A Shortfall


In the void I feel

it is that full that I miss.

 Silence is oriented in the lost voices.

Graffiti of a time

they fade now in dust without identity.

I stay here with the weight of a shortfall.
