I wait, incandescent, I fall. In my story there is a song, deep and secret, who asks for hatching. This song hidden in each existence, each person, and that often stays buried. Bare feet in the ashes, I wait… I look/seek around in the debris, the memories, without really knowing what. I see that around me the plants have already grown too much and that the rain drips on the great green leafs. It is not real sadness, it is more like a painful shrug. So I leave, by instinct or mistake, I am on my way. I walk alone on the road, I forget. I am summer, heat, storm, this wild child, this nature. Because that is the way we are, infinitely great and free.
