The inscriptions of a stoic


As I sing in the cage, the verse comes as a reflection, as …. diversity.

1

ETERNITY
The fragile time of human life
stretches in big words
it meditates for eternity
that will disappear
the moment the big words are complete

2
HUMANS
Human bodies
like clamped rings
they walk,
interwoven with steel joints
and springs
People imbue their minute fluids
into the ears of silence as they speak …

3
POVERTY
Poor kids drag their feet while walking,
ashamed of the shoe,
Marked kids laugh
their unguarded shoe,
The poor feel discomfort
The girls first looked at each other’s feet,
then at their faces

PASSION

you are perverse to Didro’s
chief,
or rather Livia,
no
(Later …)
I’d love to call you Gorgon or Messaline.
to good and evil in a precise hour,
in the required and expected context
there is time left to give birth to tragedy

5
GREED
Noble vases
they break more easily
moon sucks lightning and out of real soap bubble
brandy for emperors
because they bring you gifts
6
ON FREEDOM, LIGHT, HOPE
if you awoke one day and find yourself
famous
happy, however mighty might chill you into misery
suffice it, by bidding an anchorite
sail upon the restless darky shore
and long will you feed dread the willow branch foeman
do not let light give up again
TO BE CONTINUED..
