per diem
thorough

i drink the poison but it has no effect on me.
 1
my mood is stubborn,
 2
and resistant to change.
 3
 
 
hurts to be the prodigal son,
 4
the only one able to return.
 5
how long will i remain at home?
 6
until all vices are solved and disappeared.
 7
 
 
all else are allowed to make
 8
endless mistakes, but i have
 9
made all of mine.
 10
time releases your need to act
 11
childishly. to want what is nearest
 12
to birth is slowing growth,
 13
stopping it.
 14
 
 
what is next? an artisanal life,
 15
fixing broken things.
 16
becoming the source of happiness
 17
for other people,
 18
ignoring my own.
 19
 
 
i remember being truly happy.
 20
i was selfish and ignorant,
 21
the former being a feeling
 22
never to be reached.
 23
 
 
///
 24
 
 
relying on luck to turn
 25
my days around, knowing well
 26
my spring is dry.
 27
 
 
i have trained myself to need
 28
nothing, having seen days
 29
beyond my worst imagination
 30
and survived.
 31
 
 
i am waiting for the next end of the world,
 32
and the questions left to answer on its return.
 33
moving without error
 34
towards our greatest mistakes
 35
and victories, the past will lie in confusion,
 36
slow to burden us.
