Fourth floor over the city

Elsewhere, undoubtedly, sunsets exist. But even from this fourth floor over the city we can think of the Infinite. An Infinite with warehouses below, it is true, but with stars on the horizon… This is what comes to my mind in this late afternoon, at this high window, in the dissatisfaction of the bourgeois that I’m not and in the sadness of the poet that I will never be.

Altrove, senza dubbio, esistono i tramonti. Ma perfino da questo quarto piano sulla città si può pensare all’Infinito. Un Infinito con magazzini sottostanti, è vero, ma con stelle all’orizzonte… E’ quanto mi viene alla mente in questo pomeriggio ultimo, presso questa alta finestra, nell’insoddisfazione del borghese che non sono e nella tristezza del poeta che non potrò mai essere.
_Bernardo Soares (aka Fernando Pessoa)_
