the sought for peace – ambita pace – râvnita pace

Trilingual text


I understand that the turmoil of everyday life leads us sideways
“To be” means just to have
We’re looking for assumed peaces among things
But all things can be turned into weapons
We simulate beliefs and formal religiosities – God is a best seller
Embellished with intentions and moralistic images
No, no, no… I don’t want peace as long as I am alive
My bones don’t wish for a death of this sort,
I want the torment of the life in the seed, in the bud, in the first smile
I want all armies sent back home,
The armies in uniforms: military, religious, institutionalized…
The only uniform – uni – form is the nude
We seek for peace when uniforms stifle us, we look at the world through eye sockets
We are ashamed of the emptiness inside… and how can we seek for peace this way?
No, no…
