In your own words: I am a philosophy teacher at liceo and hearing and feeling Sting playing and singing I reinforce my opinion that teaching is just like stay on a stage with the difference that my songs are the concepts in which every morning I have to put in a breath and a pulse; but I am also a poet and I started to compose also in English to explain my 'mixed emotions' about Sting music and figure. I put below one of my poems about Sting (entitled the Chromatisms of Tyne)

THE CHROMATISMS OF TYNE

The iron of the rails nails the gloomy grey of the sky to the town of Tyne
The rusted hissing of the points
The brakes creak on the last mile of the run
They get off with the black marks of the coal on their cheeks
The powder of the toil on the miners’ faces
The dark cosmetics of the night slowly wraps up the streets
In the pub, among the smoke, the beers and the slang,
a voice and the iron of the four strings
They nail the night to the laws of the sky
Harmonies which weave the dances of the planets in the firmament
In the flesh of the mists and the coal, of the iron and the rain,
the gleam of the blues runs through the souls
