"Che il tempo si possa fermare.
E i gesti. Le oscillazioni della Luce negli atti.
E gli uomini, gli orfani e le costruzioni degradanti l'orizzonte.
Poi il respiro degli dei che corrono, leggono, fanno l'amore, si saldano tra pioggia e lacerazioni, contano e ricontano l'infinito e poi a ritroso e poi ancora l'infinito.
E poi Mauro, tu che rileggi il mare nel cemento e lo trasformi nell'iride di tua Madre. Che rendi la forza dei prigioni e la liberi e la imprigioni e la liberi. Che sciogli il sale negli occhi. Per potere. Vedere. Finalmente."
