How do I lose myself in someone else's world
someone who plays with his PC days and nights
trying to find faces not ever seen?
His mother, sitting on the threshold
and knitting, is all determined to go on so
till the end of her life.
The father, sad and unsociable, saunters
with a bird cage. Look! He calls out to passers-by.
Everybody stays in his own prison. Inside this one
is my freedom!
The bird, having long forgotten its fortune
cooperates to exercise a heart-stricken expression
in the numb eyes.
