En route to the summit

En route to the summit

 

 

Zen

 

Green pearls roll on my hand

I focus the emptiness of the blue sky

Trembles my spine

A tear evades her eyes

 

Some incident in the antipodes of the world

Disturbs my meditation

 

I’m now everywhere

With you

 

 

Idol

 

Regretfully there’s nothing left

Only ruins and debris

 

My fate was to mirror you

My idol, my tutor

But I failed

 

Chaos erupted

From the flames

That sent you back to the ashes

 

What is the matter of an ending,

When all beginnings seem so empty?

 

 

Tarot

 

I know

I will know

I knew

 

Everything was set

From past to present to future

 

Everything is set

Everything will be

 

Dare to be whole

 

 

 

Rabbi

 

I have a vertebra of Arabic origin

A tongue of Latin spell

A Hebraic skin

An Indian look

An Oriental gait

 

Read the book of my blood in all languages

And send my soul to space

 

Sacred is my secret name written in the stars

 

 

 

Zenith

 

Touch my hand

Give me a look of tenderness

Smile with me

Be my voice

Craft the void of my sorrow with letters made of gold

 

 

Voices from the past

*

 

The whirling

 

Running after ghosts

Step and step

To the top

A curse on the skin

Feathers in the air

Sun never seen

 

Sleeping in the night bus

From Piccadilly to Venice

Without love

Without mercy

 

God save the Queen

I am no mean man

 

*

 

Green savoir

 

Apples for dessert

Lettuce as main

And to begin and tame

Strawberries for the nerd

 

I was pursuing an ideal

Saving lambs from demons

But had to surrender

And stop being tender

 

It is a fatal deal

We are settled to be phantoms

Backstage

 

She didn’t see his eyes

Flashing hallucinations

She was only walking through

Hiding the pink lingerie

 

She didn’t hear his cries

Sparkling adulations

She was only walking through

Above all his misery

 

*

 

Tango

 

Being sent away

By the melody

Finding a way

Through agony

 

It’s a matter for couples

It’s a question of pairing

The body doubles

In the ether of caring

 

*

 

Peace in the end

 

You learned the language of birds

While flying in the city

You became acquainted with cats and rats

Alone in the city

 

You met a fairy

Who kissed you good night

 

Everything made sense

In the debris of the city

No essence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laughing smile

I always take a look

before

 

taking a break

from suppositions

 

observing real

things

 

spelling with caution

fragments

 

agglutinating with patience

little gestures

 

the big picture is

the FUTURE

 

past is tremulous,

while facing the sneering

contemptuousness

of your thinking

 

why is your smile so beautiful?

 

did I tell you about life’s

volatile condition?

 

mocking at me?

 

forget it

 

take a break from suggestions

and breathe truth

as it is

Liquidation

The abscess slowly swells

Through the landscape
A sheep returns

Scalps are furnished with hats
That hide the hideous pointless rupture
Of a self

The sheep continues, and continues
Grazing

Hats, hiding

My self ignominiously perceives the corrupted nature of all
And follows behind

It started sending sobs

sobs
sobs
sobbing

I see this woman

I see this woman

She’s talking edible words

Like “strategy” and “voyage”

And I sip from my bottle

While she suggests paying me a visit

Yes, she’s nice and caring

Extravagant, perhaps

But nice and caring

And caring

And caring

And I sip from my bottle

Out of strategy and voyage

 

The move

Adrenaline rising

Legs quivering

You stretch out your arm

Still insecure

And bang!

You spot instantly the blunder.

 

It was just one of those moments

In which you rushed it.

It will take some time to forgive yourself.

 

Let’s go on

Making moves which move.

Timed verse

ZERO

Run

Run

She cried

Run

Run

I didn’t see

Run

Run

He stopped

Run

Run

They smiled

THREE

She was a dolly, afraid

I was a consciousness, straight

He was a handicapped runner

They were only watching… IT

FIVE

Run

Run

She cried

Run

Run

I didn’t see

Run

Run

He stopped

Run

Run

They smiled

Nobody waited

Nobody was

Disguised emptiness fooled the spirits

Who prayed to God for hope

TWELVE

But

Nobody is

Nobody cares

As time goes by

goes by

Run

Run

Go

Run

Run

Go

SIXTEEN

Nonsense verse is running

Running verse is nonsense

She cried

I didn’t see

He stopped

They smiled

and you are a sleeping tide

TWEN-TY!

Ultimatum

Now I appreciate you

Simple and limpid

As pure water from the mountain river

Without much, or many, or a lot

Scarce and thin

Like a red poppy kissing the gust

Both gelid and warm

Serious and tender

I read in your lips

My first ending

– An encounter with Truth

A digressing from delusion

Hello

Goodbye

In the blink of a fresh eye
