Tina Salipante – Mare Fecunditatis
“I went back there,
Where I had never been.
Nothing, as it was not, has changed.”
Life and death appear to me as a single function that cancels itself in its beginning, almost a still movement, a failed act in the fall of time where the forms of existence transmute into silence, dissolve the contours of life and persist, distracted, the residues of memory in the fragments of human creation.
To impart edges to things, to suffer their weight and then surrender to blind transformation: tremblings of nothingness in the vastness of the spirit.
… And it is in this tide of the soul that death seems to me to be more and more the sister of life.
