The sink holed’s plea

The sink holed’s plea

If you find a skeleton
tied by wires to another skeleton,
tied to another skeleton
and still to another one, that’s me.
Do not look for me in any place,
in a hole or in a ditch.
I lie in those deep and twisted cavities
Flowed by rivers
 which are common in the Kras  region
shared by Italy, Slovenia and Croatia
and ill-famed as  swallow holes.

Please wrap me in a wired drape
and give what rests of my body
 back to my beloveds,
to my homeland
and to the things of God.
I hate no one and forgive all.
Just one last thing I’m going to ask you:
open the eyes of your children to the truth!
