In one go… #26

In the style of The Microscope & The Roller Coaster

Lost, broken, burned,

There’s no more time.
Not now, not for us.

But wasn’t it supposed to be relative
Not real, nor objective?

And yet…

Time out.

Jammed gear,
A goner, finished.

On a freezing steel table
I lay down memories and emotions

That slowly die
In that non-time that doesn’t exist.

Glances will get lost
Scrutinizing a lifeless horizon,

Seeking in immensity
That image of you.

(Should you ever return, I ask myself:
Will you even know how to find me?)

Salvador Dalí, “The Persistence of Memory” (1931)

Originally written for the contest #belleartinversi (Fine Arts in Verse) launched by an Italian Facebook group dedicated to authors (whom I thank for the initiative), the text is included in the subsequent anthology, “Galleria Poetica – Sentimenti, dipinti e sculture in versi” (Poetic Gallery – Feelings, Paintings, and Sculpture in Verse), published on Amazon, and all of whose proceeds go to charity.

In the style of #TheMicroscope & #TheRollerCoaster
