Pietri Knows … (“ I  see a red door and I want to paint it black”)

Pietri is singing
to the sky
And I am hiding
My eyes Waiting till
The wind is making faces
Dancing naked in black
He is throwing condoms from a stage
To this audience
Tables are speaking Italian
Chairs are moving closer to the door
Crazy things always seem
To happen
Round that guy!
Skies turn black
Mona lisa turns black
My hands turn black
Tears that are clear lagrimas also turn black
And when everything is black
That is perfect and beautiful
BE Cause, Pedro, EL negrito  
Liked it like that.
