An old man,

With his back wretchedly bent,

Asking his cane for a dose of life;

And a young man,

On the galloping horse of pride,

Wanting the whole world

For his racecourse:



           the flight of dust,

And the eyes of regret



          at  the table of the wind

The Earth waiting

For a new guest to descend.
