“Io sono l’abitante delle pietre senza memoria, sete d’ombra verde;
il popolano di tutti i villaggi e delle prodigiose capitali;
sono l’uomo universo, marinaio di tutte le finestre della terra stordita dai motori.
Sono l’uomo di Tokyo che si nutre di pesciolini e bambù,
il minatore d’Europa, fratello della notte;
l’operaio del Congo e della spiaggia, il pescatore della Polinesia,
sono l’indio d’America, il meticcio, il giallo, il nero:
io sono tutti gli uomini.
Sopra il mio cuore firmano le genti un patto eterno
di vera pace e fraternità.”
Jorge Carrera Andrade
