Anick Roschi

Capital Ground

Now is the shared time
Of our last riches

To each birth
A drop of water
Thirsty of river

To each birth
A drop of sweat
Exhausted of misery

To each birth
A drop of air
Dirty of deserts

Now is the exorcised time
Of our planetary reasons

The articulated time
Of a capital
