I could hear the colors– 
yellow and red,
hatred and love,
and the similar ones
I could see the noises–   
lovingly whispered
through the breeze of a morning May
I could touch the taste
of the green pear–    
with my tongue and my lips
I could speak NOTHINGNESS–
in the presence of the silence
and I could feel the festivity of the senses–
in my absolute absence
