The Microscope: preview excerpt #3


The sound of time echoes in the dark room,
annoyingly insinuating itself into your thoughts.
The night, silent, amplifies its racket.

Car headlights not yet asleep
create unexpected designs on the walls,
curious light games, ephemeral distractions.


The sound of time echoes in the empty room,
passing slowly, inexorably, following its own metronome.
Accompanied by a light sigh.

Vivid memories make a bunch of noise in the mind,
pondering too much makes eyelids heavy.
But that night the head wants no part of sleep…

From The Microscope. A collection of snapshots immortalized with a pen, “Snapshot n. 4”.
