  • I came inside the partitions of your dreams, your night, My Knight,

    I slipped like a Venus dot across your orange spaces.

    You slipped in turn, through the partitions of my own second life. I could feel you

    Speaking to me in the secret cells of my places, naked, nowhere to hide, and you came inside

    My dreaming, and you rested awhile.

    We lived and we did not tremble for we were asleep in the moment of the Venus crossing

    In a place so simple maybe humans could not live in it, awake, alive. We swam in the sky.

    We swam in the sky.
