Perplexitate.

Tu spui linistit: “adevar”.
Ei se uită la tine si tac,
fara sa priceapa ce vrei,
dar pentru ca sunt oameni educati
intreaba: “Cat costa?”
Tu le arati mainile goale,
dar ei nu mai pricep gestul de mult
si, nedumeriti, dau sa plece.
Tu alergi si le spui: “speranta”.
Politicosi, ei se opresc si te intreaba
inca o data: “Cat costa?”
Iar tu nu stii ce valoare are speranta. Si taci.

[Octavian Paler.]
