Writing

If you could go back in time
you’d make the same mistakes again
you’d relive the nasty parts
as well as the good ones

Being older you’re aware
that you cannot know
what lies ahead

It has yet to be written
and you’ve learned to write

Quote

The elusive art of waiting

It’s an art
I’m trying to master,
but all I manage to do
is fill the space of time with ‘items’
so that my thoughts don’t linger,
excessively, on the awaited one.

The void itself is grey,
but not always,
it does depend
on the nature of the expectation.

It’s dark grey now,
that I am waiting
for relieving news.

It can be purple,
in other cases,
better cases.

To dance one dance

To dance one dance

Out of a dream
you came to me
to dance one dance.

It left me
unexpecting, my womb in flames, my breath short.

Gratitude and melancholy.

Un giro di danza

Della materia dei sogni
sei venuta a me
per un giro di danza.

Mi ha lasciata
senza pretese, col ventre in fiamme, il fiato corto.

Gratitudine e malinconia.

12 Marzo 1990

Chiuse finalmente il portone e si trovò in strada.
I suoi passi si fecero sempre più veloci.

Si era finalmente liberata di lui.

Non c’erano state le urla che lei aveva temuto,
lui era rimasto in silenzio a guardarla
mentre lei spiegava le sue motivazioni.

Era libera.

Prima di tutto però,
doveva sbarazzarsi di quella pistola.
