Operazione Poetica.IV

A broken male-voice was heard whispering. This voice became a character called Morris which turned into a project named 'Operazione Poetica'. Three prosperous years have since gone by now which have generously given us 'The Rocking Chair', 'The Rubber Basket', 'The Rope', recordings of some sixty poems and 'The Silver Bowl' ;a prize from the International Association of Poets rewarded for Morris's much acclaimed poem 'Whole', Now the 'fe' has been added to the 'male' on a billboard in Copenhagen This transformation has been verbalized in the poem 'Oval':

Oval
the orb
deforms
and stoops
opening its wounds
which will never be healed,

for there are always men
with matches in a box
who with their kindling spirits
eagerly
Seek the flame


to see themselves -
silhouettes
on concrete walls.
