We are archaeologist,

We know both the layers of the earth                                      and the many books,
the treasures that are visible                                                    and those that are imagined.

But for us, equally important, is the depth.
We scour through earthenware                                               and countless bibliographical notes;

we search and sometimes we discover
and recover the material                                                        and immaterial fragments
of a past life
but we destroy it just to rebuild it.

That might sound a little crazy
but we are full of passion.
Despite all the work and effort involved,
it is still worthwhile to give a long,
lost story back to the world.
