“Era la parte meno forte, inutile,
invisibile del mio corpo.
Fino a quel giorno.
Quando il buio mi costrinse
a liberare lo sguardo e a vedere.
Esperienze che avevo dimenticato
o, forse, mai conosciuto.
La mano sinistra me le aveva custodite
per tutto il tempo.
Per poi restituirle, schiudendo finalmente le dita.
Accostamenti inconsueti e sorprendenti sproporzioni
svelano, nella dimensione irreale, la verità”.
