(Swans - March 23, 2009)  

yatra na anyat pashyati
where we cannot see each other

e altri sopportano tutte le miserie
and others bear all calamities

mundus sempiternus hominum
egestate cibi peremptus
an endless universe of men,
dead of poverty

ma se uno muore non importa a nessuno
purché sia sconosciuto e lontano

but if someone dies, it doesn't matter to anybody,
provided that he's far and unknown.



The author thanks Giusy Chirco.

Drawing: indifferenza, by Giuseppe Quattrocchi (2009).
