Castel Sant’ Angelo

Azure

Too azure…

The Roman sky.

Smiles on their faces: mothers and little children.

 

Where are their men?

 

Tourists all over

The ancient Roman walls

Taking pictures and pictures and pictures…

 

Where are their souls?

 

Cuddled in their desolate coats

Dust in their wrinkles…

 

Where are their homes?

 

The angel up above has lost its sword…

 

When will I learn to fly?
