The London Hours, 2012

Standard

Can’t get a moment
with myself without
missing you
.
can’t understand
the truth by talking it
out with others
.
can’t make myself
fathom the shape of your
days any longer
.
while you are
busy
.
burying me
in silence
.
without hands
and no one
word
.
written or uttered
nor gesture nor
nor
.
nor and without.

painplainfully – December 2011

Standard

*

.

skin sagging into sweetness

.
wisdom

.
trembling lips under teary eyes

.
moving away as clouds

.
shadows lingering

.
hands covered with landscape

.
furrows plowed

.
a voice ceasing

.
old age and the facing of death

.
no more sounds

.
iced silence on a frozen scape

Ottantanove piani

Standard

*

Ottantanove piani non fanno un concerto,
ma una tragedia silenziosa.
.
In tre salgono controsenso verso
una manciata di condannati, la porta bloccata. Un buco
un pugno passa il muro, due visi
appoggiati a una parete
si ascoltano respirare. L’ultimo del piano
racconta, l’incendio infuria contro il cielo, e loro
.
trecento metri per raggiungere terra, duemila scalini
lenti e calmi contro il terrore. Quanti pensieri
silenziosi, prepotenti tra un passo e l’altro, lacrime implose,
fuori cenere, brandelli e corpi
varcavano l’aria, scomposti tetri fuochi d’artificio,
causa del silenzio più abbagliante. Il terrore,
mi hanno raccontato, è bianco.
