POSTCARD FROM BAKIO

八月 16, 2017

POSTCARD

We are in Bakio.
Life is perfect.
Life is precarious, as everywhere.
Life is perfect.
Waves.
Special climate.
Not too hot.
We came to Bilbao
from Barcelona.
In this region, too
history means
resistance and independence.
Bakio has a new leftist mayor.
Bakio is a mid-sized town.
Summer houses.
Summer apartments.
Some things all year.
Bigger waves in winter.
The sea claims back
the old beachline.
Life is perfect.
The church of San Juan
up on that rock not very far
two hours on foot
less if you hurry
is in Game of Thrones.
Only there it’s a palace.
See you soon!

MONA LISA

MONA LISA

the smiling one
is well protected
she hangs forever
in a brand-new prison
supported by Nippon Television
visited daily
by millions of people
all of them mortal
no-one cares if they smile
except some of them
for a very short while
