E lui mi aspetterà nell’ipertempo
E lui mi aspetterà nell’ipertempo,
sorridente e puntuale, con saluti
e storie che alle poverette orecchie
dell’arrivata parranno incredibili.
Ma riconoscerà, lui, ciò che gli dico?
In poche note o versi qui raccolgo
i messaggi essenziali. Un alto raggio,
aria diversa glieli tradurrà.

Bestiary (31): The Unicorn, is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, including Ctesias, Strabo, Pliny the Younger, and Aelian. The Bible also describes an animal, the re’em, which some translations have rendered with the word unicorn.
