VIII. Sundown

The Story Torcello told Tomaso

For seven days of hard labor,
the only hours that were granted to Tomaso, were that of each night, after sundown.
An unjust exchange.

But they belonged to him, free to wish and free to dream.
Here he could remember in all the colours of home.
Sicilia.
