A Big

A Big

A Poem by Nico

lies and deception


do you want to hear
a big no now?
I'm ready to say
a “no” of the heart
it's better that we
express one together


a gust of wind will
at least move between
the blocks of cement down
here, and it will push
to open more windows.


and somebody might
notice that from the
depth of the night.


another no
capable to arrive
on every level
at every existing arms factory.
and on everything on which
one has to say no.


it will be the truth
that should never be kept silent
when one cannot understand
the rumour that goes around,
you will see
it will be the truth
one should never escape
in front of the city and
from the kicks it gives
you will see.


most of all
it will leave a sign
more than anything else
it will hit every ear.


a big no that is
asked by more people
also by those
that have never said one
lately I have a dry no
in the middle of my teeth.


and nobody will be able
to say that there was none
or that he never understood.....


a big no
a big no in the throat
one more no
one more word that goes
straight to those
that would like to put it to silence...
no... it will be the truth
that should never be kept silent
that should never be escaped from.
