A me non pareva male in fase di spinta quella volta che l'ho visto.
Quanti anni ha? 20?
 
Dodo della Roma? Se spinge troppo si rompe.
 
Il dodo, uccello meraviglioso estinto per l'arrivo dei bianchi, portoghesi ed olandesi, nell'isola di Mauritius dopo il 1650...:)




SLEEP OF THE DODO

The dodo sleeping, dreaming of himself,
lost in his daily doings. His wife mounted
in a menagerie of mogul extremes.
His children born and slain for sport,
with nary a nod save the wind,
echoing an old dance tune.

Funny squawks: coracoo, coracoo
swept by mist into the grotto,
the sugar plantation. Funny beaks
bobbing the swamp's dreaming pond.
Comic bodies washed up on the craggy
shore. Funny bones, then no more.

The sun hung, bled into the clouds.
God's bloodshot eyes, such sad surprise.
The dodo awoke, and seeing them,
slowly closed his own again.
Out of this world, into the indistinct
memory of a line that had forgotten itself.

(Patti Smith)
