A week of A Man from Our Time

He sharpens  his dream 
By the hone of the  illusion, 
Under his arm 
He put roses   
And a bit of of life's basils 
Then goes to his work. 
He says to the beloved: 
Tomorrow, when  the dreams tree  leaves 
On our stature, 
And the light leapt smiling 
In Our eyeballs 
Humbly will come the sea 
And give  us its waves. 
From the breast of the clouds he suckles 
Five songs, 
And by the stone 
He slaughters the weathercock. 
He irrigates his memoirs 
With the water of trouble, 
In the evening 
He expectes to be kidnapped. 
When he comes to the cafe 
He drinks from his cup 
A quantity of eulogies 
About the  members of his tribe, 
And when he goes out   
He buries his misgivings in his pockets. 
He goes to  the city bar 
And behind him he pulls 
The chariot of the grief, 
Instills in the field of his body 
Seedlings of the wine 
To make himself melted. 
His feet take him   
Where the nightmares of the road are, 
His eyes lurk among the passers-by.
