bisogna andarsene da qui

Nanni Balestrini

bisogna andarsene da qui

abitare il mondo intero non frammenti separati del mondo

il mondo reale non è un oggetto è un processo

qualsiasi cosa causa ogni altra cosa

le cose devono entrare in noi

l’istante è sempre una rinascita

we must leave here

Nanni Balestrini

we must leave here

live in the whole world not fragmented parts of the world

the real world is not an object it is a process

any one thing causes every other thing

things must inhabit us

the instant is always rebirth.
