The Mature Soul

Albania, Israel, world, earthly globe
I had no word to say
I have no word to say
I shall not have a word to say
All the ears of the earth and heavens hear the word
All the eyes of the earth and heavens watch the word
All the mouths and tastes of the earth and heavens eat the word
All the throats and thirsts of the earth and heavens drink the word
All the lives of the earth and heavens increase the word
All the deaths of the earth and heavens diminish the word
All the scales of the earth and heavens weigh the word
The word wraps up around itself in the company of teeth
The word leaves traces
All the words are the soles of the tongue's feet
The word is carved like marble
In the acropolis it breaks into pieces
The fence of letters surrounds the word
Preserving the inherent meanings only for itself
So the word, the sacred, does not live
No, the word does not live
In the Tower of Babel
That collapsed because of the 'heads made into cults' weighing on its neck
Thus says Genesis, Bible, Chapter 11
Gnawers of all kinds have been wandering about
The ruins blooming with the skulls of the ungrateful ever since
The word, the good, does not live
No, the word does not live
In Paradise, Paradise is empty of words
O hey! O hey! O hey! The mature soul, the first porter that appeared in our world
Knows this by all means
Better than all do
All his life
He carries the body of the word on his back.
