Spaghetti knots

how to kill a bird that has been in a cage for many years

give it sky

 

how to break a cardiologist assured of strict causes for diseases

give them heartache

 

how to destroy a worker proud of their job, their rough hands, their daily tiredness

give their factory automation

 

how to suffocate a sinner

give it blessings

 

how to deny the dead

give them life

 

how to hold hate

give it love

 

how to stifle a child

give it adults

 

how to stifle an adult

give it children

 

how to stifle

give nothing

but know that in doing so

you have taken too much

just like the sky that

will one day fall

when all is given
