It’s maybe all about Romantic portraits,
Old canvases pocked with wormholes,
Old-fashioned manners of wearing hair and clothes
Forever stuck in the illusion of movement and time
—For in the end we all belong to the dead.

Brush away the shadow of doubt;
We are multidimensional drawings, written shapes,
Trajectories carved on the never-ending texture.
Plunged into mist, darkness and mysteries,
We dance in a ghostly revel—nightmarishly.

Let there be vacuousness, since we are vanishing smoke,
Audacious stains and nothing more.
We are merely perceiving anomalies
And the universe, with its majestic architecture,
Is as blind to us as we are blind to everything.

A ghost-like ballet with death at the end.
O sweet dance of reality, you’re a ghostly revel!

A dread party of drunk skeletons
Dressed with elegant arrogance,
Drinking and gazing at the image of life
Through grim glasses of bones.


Restammo immobili, fantasmi effimeri,
Al ballo dell’eterno senza tempo,
Sicché ogni notte ci trovi, se vuoi,
Dall’altra parte di questa parete.

Dello spettacolo di vita e morte
Fummo spettri e spettatori. Lo siamo
Ancora. Non ci appartiene l’esistere.

Scivoliamo sul presente, nere ombre
Crepuscolari, al limite di corpi
Su cui getta la luce i propri raggi
Esiziali, sprigionando il mistero insondabile…

We are the ghosts.
