_the autumns of spring

the autumns of spring
when the roads go missing
and the clocks go mute

i hear you whisper
but i cannot understand
if the light reaches beyond infinity
or if infinity ends

in a garden
a day between two wars
the year without
a life after

in the depths of silence
drowning is a form of swimming
where we search for angels without wings
the birds who live in the sea

here there is the possibility of life

and love

always in the end
the love and life that were and were not
