Bricks

I take the words one by one,
like builders take the bricks,
to catch the things
in their natural motion.

I place the bricks one on top of another,
and, behold, in front of me rises the sky,
more blue than ever,
so close that I can almost touch it.

The stars fall like flowers
forced by the storm,
and you can only hear the clock of the sea
in this absolute silence.

Shadows contract
in midday sun,
and we have no idea what mysteries we carry
in our hearts, under a mask of happiness.

We don’t know how to lose,
we are afraid of victories,
but we continue to march
in golden chain mails.

I take the words one by one,
like builders take the bricks,
to build a new world,
where words are missing.
