(Swans - December 3, 2007)  

on Cumean beaches, on the top of the hundred mouths temple
engravings on the walls, of Daedalus forgotten mysteries,
times time mysteries,
que es este hombre?
his hand not writing on the lost son—
templa immania of underground Diana,
la alma
soul in search for the sleep doors
for the every day dead,
esta lo que esta,
and nobody remembers them
and we don't remember
we forget
ningun, y todos



memory, fleeting mirage through time and space, finds the deceitful nature about the distance paradox. From out of yourself because in interiore homine habitat veritas ("inside the depths of the man, here's the truth," Augustine). Gratitude of one that "soared on a new way" (Vergil): realising this unwilling action, he brings to light his pristine nostalgic essence.

Through sleep doors, his call echo interrogates the night/waiting:
"Who's that man?", and by his mouth: "He is what he is" (Hugo), the absolute unwilling, "to be alive symbolized by the birth" (Ricoeur). Oblivion, extension of memory, projection/tension of a dream that is extinguishing inside a time entirety, where "the dialecticts of me/others, memory/future" are internal in the subject uniqueness, of a protagonist/victim through "the accident becoming opportunity" (Ricoeur).
