Something About Heads 

The process of collapsing takes time. 


Body rots from inside out, 

Slowly draining.

Feet become heavier,

Heart becomes insensible,

Eyes become blurry. 


Struggling on the edge of life.

Desire versus gravity. 

Dream versus reality. 


Where can we go? 

With an empty heart. 

And a dead body.


Keep walking.

The person you are looking at is not the one you are looking for. 

Keep fighting.

The person beside you may be your enemy in the next second. 


Don’t fall. 

Keep balance in unbalance. 

Don’t cry. 

Singing and dancing: Best medicine to forget about reality for a moment. 

What can we see? 

In this society exploding with information. 

What can we believe?


What do we sell in order to buy? 

What do we ingest in order to sleep?


Surveillance. Surveillance. Surveillance.


Does technology move us closer? 

Or further apart? 


Are we machines? 

Are we human? 

Or are we animals? 


Let the bench sing.
