THE MAN FROM CAINA
 
Burned
The green clothes
Of the scenery of love.
With the soot he covered his face
He borrowed from the fox
Her eyes.
On the wall of time
He hung
A broken mirror.
In the mirror
His own self
In a thousand copies.
From a distance thousands of copies
From close by thousand pieces
Of many limbs
 
(1983)
 
The first part of ninth circle of Dante’s Inferno (first part of The Divine Comedy), where Dante puts fratricidal criminals
 
 
THE MAN FROM TOLOMEA
 
He has two legs
Two hands
Twenty nails.
He has glasses of special diopter
For one eye minus infinite
For the other eye plus infinite.
He has three mouths
He eats bones with the first
He distributes smiles with the second
He recites verses with the third.
He escapes to the nest of a failure
And warms the eggs of the shame
In an ill dream.
The man from Tolomea.
 
(1983)
 
The second part of ninth circle of Dante’s Inferno (first part of The Divine Comedy), where Dante puts traitors of friends.
 
 
THE MAN FROM ANTENORA
 
In antiquity
A certain Artisani Perilo
Constructed a brass bull
To sell it to the tyrant…
The condemned
Were to be burnt in it
Their screams
Were transformed into bull bellows.
The tyrant
Began the brass bull’s work
With the builder himself.
It is ancient and new
This event, my friend
Who is walking every day
Along the paths of Antenora.
 
(1983)
 
The third part of ninth circle of Dante’s Inferno (first part of The Divine Comedy) where Dante puts traitors of the nation.
 
 
THE MAN FROM JUDECCA
 
He escaped from Judecca
And entered stealthily
Into people’s lives.
And bestowed smiles
And gave nobility.
And hugged people
And rewarded people
With pearls
Of the deep wells
Of Judecca.
 
(1983)
 
The fourth part of ninth circle of Dante’s Inferno (First part of The Divine Comedy) where Dante puts the traitors of the saint idea.
