Twin Towers blinding light

The last game began twelve years ago, today. In NY. Since then a new pack of cards was necessary: with a transparent sterile envelope, uncontaminated, without fingerprints. Hands (twelve years ago, today) with different hours, out of phase. World's mechanisms with blunt sounds, inside, very close, above, or far, resounding, overlapping, chained, reinforced, revised. Millions of sorrows, disappointments, passions, torments, joys, pangs, mixed with cards, their endless combinations, in the middle of horrors, perfumes, breezes, torpors and a very very little blue. And... my time that is about to end.

 

L'ultima partita ha avuto inizio dodici anni fa, oggi. A NY. Dopo di allora sono state necessarie carte nuove di zecca; un mazzo in trasparente involucro sterile, incontaminato, senza impronte. Lancette (dodici anni fa, oggi) con ore diverse, sfasate. Congegni del mondo con rumori secchi, addosso, vicinissimi, sopra, oppure lontani, risuonanti, sovrapposti, concatenati, rinforzati, modificati. Milioni di dolori, delusioni, passioni, tormenti, gioie, spasimi, mischiati alle carte, alle loro infinite combinazioni, tra orrori, profumi, brezze, intorpidimenti e poco azzurro. E... il mio tempo che sta per finire.
