Ex nihilo

N. Lygeros

Translation: Paola Vagioni




 

Stranger

Where does your knowledge come from?

 

Obscure

From nothingness!

 

Stranger

Why are you so dark?

 

Obscure

I only search for clarity and it is in the darkness where it is found.

 

Stranger

And who could understand your thought?

 

Obscure

The men of depth.

 

Stranger

We are not all divers of Delos.

 

Obscure

Then, luminosity will remain in the darkness.

 

Stranger

We will need your brightness.

 

Obscure

Only I cannot emit it. Everything is in my opus.

 

Stranger

Opus without brightness…

 

Obscure

Materials without a table

 

Stranger

Like “About nature”

 

Obscure

Rare are those who can understand.

 

Stranger

And you only write for them…

 

Obscure

They are the only ones who live.

 

Stranger

Will the opus be enough?

 

Obscure

Time chooses its fragments.

 

Stranger

It is inside these where the glow of darkness will live.

 

Obscure

It will live inside every fire that we lit.

 

Stranger

Is this why you warm up in the kitchen?

 

Obscure

The hearth is my space.

 

Stranger

Because everything turns into fire?

 

Obscure

Because everything can be god.

 

Stranger

Why do you renounce power?

 

Obscure

It cannot be the kingdom of knowledge.

 

Stranger

Yet the world….

 

Obscure

The world is a creation of thought.

 

Stranger

And time?

 

Obscure

It is its becoming.

 

Stranger

Isn’t everything destined to fade away?

 

Obscure

In balance…

 

Stranger

And beyond balance?

 

Obscure

Time is a child that enjoys itself.

 

Stranger

Recreation or re-creation?

 

Obscure

It is the power of ignition!
