A stone is better than a cancerIn the sense of a poetic image,

But the deceased is dead, and there is no cure,

While the message is burning in the phone

And in the fishmonger I say I,

I am the very last inhabitant of a memory;

Alone, with one foot over the cliff,

Whence in the foam I let your name fall,

I let your name fall among the fishes,

Those wild ones that cannot be caught,

And through a smile I say your name to myself,

Something maybe insignificant, so it falls

Among the waves, all the way to the rocks,

And that’s how I deliver the message.

That’s how I say goodbye and finally hug you. Delete
