Te Deum




Can you see? An year tonight, another
runs away
and it vanishes soon. Fast.
The time’s tangle
snarls itself then grabs it
to drag it far away
where the silence is silent.

And me …
… Here I am and resist, with my face
masked, clothed
by pale flesh
sometimes there is a smile, or a frown,
or just nothing

And you?
Like me, in the tangle
of this everything passing
in the gray
of the fog and of me:
all things off

And us?
Anyway we go walking,
in the fog, in the time, in the pallors
of the quivering flesh
and more grave,
full with faces and facts, Hope
and surprise and so beautiful
and surprised
our Hope
