The poems to death are a deception. Death is death. The river was filled. Ghostly extensions. A grave in the air was dug, in the course of the wide river, where there is no stricture. All sank into the deepest shadows. A river as grave. What is the color of this water? How to swim or sail in the darkness of our history? Hairs are still crossing the waters, remain under a poisonous sky. The skin, river sand. In a glass are collected every day, bodies. We drink water of forgetfulness. There is fog.
