(Swans - July 2, 2007)  

in the lost parts of Earth
non c'è mai stato un sogno
I never see dreams,
no te pierdas el Ahora
don't forget the now...
la luna è caduta su se stessa secoli fa
the moon fell centuries ago,
(pero es raro en tierras del Norte)
le stelle non hanno più padrone
e si divertono ad ingannarci,
stars without leader
are enjoying to swindle us

si pudiera volver a vivir viajaría màs liviano,
(so, if in a new life before me again,
I'd live lighter)



so near and so far the Ego...wreck of existing (K. Jaspers), finding a sense in the disharmony and in the silence (A. Neher) in front of an incurable fate, only redeemed by el Ahora (the Now) in suspended visions places (G. Monte).
My desert, my wild land, my mild limbus, my way out (I. Bachmann).



Drawing: Giuseppe Quattrocchi, vicino-lontano (near-far), 2001.
