  5997.     

H.

you challenge me to write about nothing
you say it is nice theme
something that we experience somehow
when we are down
depressed like a man screaming on the boat
bound to nowhere
rotating upon itself the paddles all so confused

i don't really believe that i can write about it
it is beyond my grasp
beyond the clutches of words
but let me tell you that when i begin to sigh
and take a deep breathe
i know that it is here inside my heart
but my guts deny it

  5998.     

Habent sua fata libelli

the destiny of books
always depends on the
reader,

the destiny of my poetry
depends
on the capacity of
the feeler

its rhythm its tone
and color
its scent
its ending
its lasting impression

its possibilities like your
possibilities
always a memory of those
whom we have
easily
buried in the realm of
forgetting.

  5999.     

habit

this is by force of habit
that my fingers
caress the keys
to make
another poem
for the day,
nothing is really
significant,
nothing to give
us power,
it is like
brushing my teeth,
washing my hands,
gargling vinegar with salt,
defecating,
putting my brief
and shorts,
straightening my collar,
inserting my shirt
locking my belt,
combing my hair,
going to the office,
you try going further
than all these,
sorry, there is nothing here
but just routine,
plain typing, and reporting,
stating
and even
by force of habit
without thinking
i said, keep doing
what you do with your life,
do not follow me,
there is nothing
important about this,
this is routine,
the usual path,
where everyone passes
and goes and enters
and exits and
exits and enters
all over again
until death surprises
you no more,
comes like
plain closing and opening
of the office door.

  6000.     

habla me, the gipsy king

tell me
what is it that bothers you?

why you wake up at 2
in the morning
and write a poem
that you keep to yourself?

why you keep all those emotions
inside you?

what is the color of your sorrow?
what is the sound of your happiness?

tell me
why until now you still hide in the shadows
of your being?

tell me now
because tomorrow i am leaving.
