Kiss your right, boss, I am you, I apologize for the inconvenience…
– the leaven of love raised me bigger than

I am Kiss your right, life, where are you as you are hiding so much in the rustling jingling carousel …
That the heart has no pulse anymore but stock exchange values

Hey you, who are you, caterpillar, can’t you see that I’m climbing?
….. you’re climbing, boss, you’re climbing… The kissed hand bites, don’t fend it…

ti bacio la mano, capo, io sono te, scusa se ti disturbo…
– il lievito dell’amore mi ha aumentato più di quanto non lo sono
.
ti bacio la mano, vita, dove sei, ti nascondi in questa giostra –
frusciando, crepitando …il tuo cuore non ha polso, ma, quotazioni borsistiche

Ehi, tu chi sei, bruco, non vedi che io sto salendo?… – salire capo, salire…
la mano baciata morde…

Injured dots – puntini lese – puncte vătămate

The word was uttered, there is no going back, the word knows no regrets

In the beginning was the dot Other dots grew at its core, genesis
Bewildered, the dot is moving happily unaware, until doubt transforms it into a winding coma

The reflection of the dot, Eve, just as the dot, Adam, couldn’t read or write
The punctuation marks were colors, waters, sounds, music…
The word renewed its vocabulary with a crucifixion – love
Motley dots, budding from the original story, had a different sort of schooling

Their hypocrisy as sword, fire and shield
After a while, the word will demand that all dots keep their word
After a different while, the dots are going to grow deaf in deafening way

Until the word descends through painful breaches, the suffering
What the present holds – the illusion reflected in wrong mirrors with no memory

we are dots…

I won’t call you “dear”, not even out of the usual kindness used in letters. I will cut to the chase, or not, I was into the chase until now, now I am getting out of it by telling you the following. 
The exit is not an exorcism, nor extirpation, maybe a birth – a late one- through budding. In you or with you, I stayed for so damn long, I always urged you to choose with your heart, you, no, you are cerebral, calculated, cold, suspicious, realist… realist? What is reality?
I always tried to write to you and you, the coward, like most of those calculated ones, you would tear the page. You don’t dear tear this one because this time, I am writing on your chest – I should have thought of it before.
Our lives were packed with wonderful stories. You demanded all the…

bad rest – mal’ riposo – odihna rea

trilingual text

Image

With one gesture I dilute the colors in strips
Transparency means now rest – one would think that I closed my eyes
.
I break twigs from the crown of sadness, one by one
Silent, but not quiet, inside, divided the words draw from tensions
Hush… the harlequin is awake; he is swinging his paper bedcover
The virginity of one playing card becomes thus underwear, I keep it hidden Intact, I am waiting
And while at it, I trim the extremely outgrown second hands, I cut limping shades
One would think that it’s the end of the world, hmm
Transparency means rest, you’ll see
From now on the decors and the signs assumed secret, prophetic, will be read
By just any chance wise man

solo con un gesto diluisco i colori in strisce
la trasparenza significa ora… riposo – potrai pensare che ho chiuso gli occhi

(campaign for euthanasia of dogs in Bucharest – campagna per l’eutanasia dei cani di Bucarest -Campania pentru eutanasierea câinilor din București

– so, soon it will be only dogs of plush, and so also our heart – così, presto sarà soltanto i cani di peluche, e cosi anche i nostri cuori– astfel, în curând vor fi doar cainii de pluș, și de asemenea inimile noastre)
.

Dogs are holding our souls in a leash
They’ve been training them with gentleness for millennia
The dog is the paradoxical symbol of the evil and of the friendship that
we cannot encompass, because we don’t look into the mirrors of reality, but into the ones of hypocrisy
Dogs are poor creatures that don’t want us to make them live a human life
Just as we sometimes live dogs’ lives
What is the turnover in the dog food and accessories industry?
