For the guardians of something





For the guardians of something


I’ll just say this:
All of the alarms
Have at least one
Deactivation sequence
For maintenance reasons

For the guardians of the borders
I declare this:
The borders are always
Near the other side
Where the others live
Nobody knows how
Eating their inedible food

For those decorated with the insignia of law:
I have the indisputable
Verdict of justice
The final one
Of the definitive time

For those who have the key
Of the horror that keeps
Territorial integrity complete
I have this count:
For home two is the minimal
The maximum is in tens
Of thousands
None ever talked

For the ones with the powder power
Is this:
When at sunset
The rose clouds
Vanish behind the palms
Where the parrots nest

When they tired come home
I’m also happy tired
Closing my notebook
Because I also have
Another key
To the horrors’ coffer

And the fruits of my work endure best
The oxide of life
The changing lights
And the cumulative effect
Of day’s passing
