We ignore the message that we are not immortal. Instead we react, in a way shouting that we are only and purely mortal. Instead of loving and learning in our life and then dying ONCE leaving a good name, we enjoy our life in a foolish way, and thus we die every day...



There, on the surface of Napoleon Avenue

in the indifferent heart of New Orleans

there reemerges the orgy of crazy carnival.

 

See the airplane; protruded from its window

a train of bridal gown of twelve hundred meters,

an extra reason for Guines to fool upstart nations.  *

 

Millions of dollars torn as confetti

thrown around from chariots of two stores.

Millions of dollars as garlands stitched

οn particoloured uniforms, under underclothes....

 

...there, so much buzz making all people deaf

not remembering the clamor of typhoon Catrina

(two years past, memory canít hold clamors back) 

 

that plans to fall upon and relevel such a feast,

flexible so as to leave the schools upright.

 

There, on the surface of Napoleon Avenue

in the indifferent heart of New Orleans

 

tell me, how mane times are we to die

in how many successive Waterloos?


 

 

* footnote : a designer of a newly rich country won a Guines "award" for his bridal gown (1200 meters length)...
