the answering machine

Ask me why

I always stop

     In front

of objects, and not


            And I will

            answer that

            from there

            I can hear them



            Ask me why

            I always stop


            people, and not

                                    In front

            And I will

            answer that

from there

I can imagine

their infancy


Ask me why

I stand

in between

Reason        and     Madness

            and I will


for my youth


            Ask me why

            I balance on

            the edge of

                               Loving or hating…..


I will not answer…

I will only kick the cube

To roll

            From the object to………………...the man


Somewhere it stops…
