The present itself is compromised and cannot be concealed. The dynamics of the fracture anticipate the collapse, walls are not made to last forever, and sometimes it is imperceptible gestures, minimal palpitations of the intimate, that make them collapse, seeming almost to find in the wall itself the exact cartography to be made for the fault to happen, like a prophecy, like an elegy of the inevitable.
Behind each fault can be found a phrase, a verse
