The whiteness in a black-spotted dove flies away from my head, each time war wakes up; A voice falls down from a window staring into emptiness, which is jammed with fragileness and trivialities, and crashes on the cracked street. Rust climbs up on garden trees loosening their hair, pouring out their dyes, selling their water and airs at the middle of the road. A mint sapling liquefies into green saliva flowing in sewer. Camels, carrying salt, water and tribal enthusiasm, perish out of thirst and snarling at the edge of the desert. Packs of sacred coins elevate, scentless, towards the digital circle of a spiral at the same age of Cain’s dagger. Angels deliver messages at the exchange market. An indifferent donkey chews history books carried upon his cross painted on his back, since the Flood dried away. Then, while the river sticks to denial and keeps forgetting shadows passing through, while rust puts its final touch on the road-map towards nothingness, a boy gets out of his burnt skin, recollects his smile which had mindlessly fallen beneath hurrying boots during the last war. The white-black spotted dove settles down inside the barrel of a wrecked cannon. Exactly at this moment, war wakes up once again.

Bloodshed, bloodshed everywhere Mere violence in the air Clouds of obscurity strewn about The sky of fateful memories. A terrible terror crammed In the inner core of the heart There’s no room for mercy now Retort hatred with hatred And
