that evening when

We talked
about paper, water,
bacteria and the microscope.
Then you asked
about the Sun and later
about rockets and the far away stars
in our universe.

Lost in my old book
where Pluto was still a planet,
big brown eyes wide opened
looking at graphics,
feeling the ground
moving around
round.

We laughed, altogether.

This is how
our Life got brighter
and you, bigger.

 

stretching the marks

I was wearing the lucky t-shirt
asking the universe for a miracle
ma l’universo rispose
restando in silenzio
mentre i miei mali si scioglievan nel pianto.

I yelled and prayed Why
don’t you listen?
e l’universo mi disse
Guarda, come guarisce
quella vecchia ferita
cicatrizzata dal sole in una giornata storta
e mi sorrise
e mi aprì un’altra porta.

Vidi un vulcano
farsi isola, piano,
e poi un continente,
e un pianeta, azzurro e verde.

There is the garden,
there is the see,
there is what we call Amazing Fantasy.

There are WE.

Qu’est-ce qu’on fait?
On attend d’être prêtes
finché vediamo che,
pronte, da sempre lo siamo.

I let go of forgiveness
as we embrace our infiniteness.
I let go of desires and wishes
as we embrace our completeness.
I let go of letting go
as we are ready to forego.

Quella maglietta con le stelle
alle stelle affiderò
e la mia pelle,
la mia pelle a Te
dedicherò.

conceptions

Last night we talked
and talked about physics
and the origin of the universe.
You remember?

Mais non, t’ais tous oublié
parce-que on a fait l’amour
aussi bien et fort que on est sorti
debout sur la morte.

Are you still sleeping, oh my
enchanted lover? Guess
the name I chose for our child.

C’est quoi un mot? Un nom?
Tu m’appelles Marta e moi,
je ne t’appellerai plus.

Look at me.

J’aime.
