Fiat Lux


on the corridor without light
every proprietor has his door
behind which he repairs
floors walls windows
he sharpens blunt knives
chops food for dogs
parsley leaves for soup

have you seen somehow nobody
I’m asking the closed doors
with the back still straight
in this wonderland nobody is crying
the others are blind for autumn colors
they place eyelid over eyelid
lightly like leaf upon leaf
heaps of eyes without eyeballs
without opening

I can still see to knock on doors
stretching forth the charity box
in the dark
hopes are thin fingers
touching lightly the globe
a toy that doesn’t turn
and yet it staggers

the sun shows up beyond the clouds
every time silence is here

Castaway


The fish bring darkness on their scales near the atoll,
hungry oysters swallow tears’ salt,
waves are crushing inside the temple bones
yesterday’s storm wreck.

I am asleep in a deserted egg,
its walls are lined with autumn leaves,
stars are stranded in my heart’s gulf,
rain sips the air like a baby whale
and returns to the sea.

There’s a sweet spring in the middle of the island,
a dry fruit hangs on a branch,
seeds are burning inside their case.
I awake and scrape the shell
until it’s bleeding.
