  • Part 2

    From Sclera

    "Ambulation of the slave:
    Octopuses are buried in earthenware vases. A dry crack comes out from the border. Urban heraldry. Old school cabinetmaking. The soles of the shoes are worn by the asphalt. The sky is like a high leaden furnace and below it, the earth is defeated, shored up by rhyme, among the small villages. Steps of Salsa, a lot of Latin movements. Copper and cardboard.
    Everything is dispersed in the radial solution.
    The final absolution: the gas chamber.
    The worker is under the infernal arch.
    Movement and shooting/reprise, fiction.
    So he arrived at the stage.
    Little by little.
    Did he move?

    da Sclera

    "Deambulazione dello schiavo:
    Polpi interrati nei vasi di cotto. Dal margine una crepa secca. Araldica urbana. Ebanisteria di vecchia scuola. La suola delle scarpe consumata dall’asfalto. Il cielo era un alto forno di piombo e sotto, puntellata di rime, la terra disfatta nei chiostri delle borgate. Passaggi in salsa, molto movimento latino. Rame e cartone.
    Tutto disperso nella soluzione radiale.
    L’assoluzione finale: camera a gas.
    Il lavoratore sotto l’arco infernale.
    Movimento e ripresa, fiction.
    Così giunse al parco.
    A poco a poco.
    Si era mosso?"
