Land Escapes...

Of all the many faults
that they can get over you
the worst thing is to look innocent...

What definite burden do you have on your back?
What energy charge do you have in your veins?
What blood is that dripping from your fingers...

The deserted beaches are still waiting for you.
All beaches are far away...

with its deep sounds.
with its jealous gods.
with its changing colors.
with its dynamic forces.
with its overcrowded voids.

The landscape takes its toll!
The landscape is completely unnecessary!
The landscape concluded your innocence
and a lost wave passes over you.

Of all the many faults
that they can get over you
the worst is that you look not guilty.

You always look so guilty
like palm trees in the wind!
You always look so innocent
like the wind in the palm trees!

The beaches are drops of sweat
at the tips of your fingers.

We can all see the bodies
that float in the background landscape
on the horizon of the beaches...

So innocent!
