A cloud of polished steel hangs over 
The village, hollowed eyed people 
Look up to the sky 
Where is spring this year? 
Like the man on the bridge they can 
take no more.
For Paulo, the old carpenter it was 
all too much, no wine could still his angst
of not seeing another spring and 
his nightly screams echoed till dawn.
Dogs barked his time was over
hanging in the shed between his tractor
and work-bench.
This shook the village out of stupor 
No more waiting for what may never come,
a pig was slaughtered its blood an offering 
to life itself.
The feast lasted for days.
