ritornano le oche
le loro ali
ancora piene di neve

their wings
still full of snow
the geese return

 

fine dell’inverno
uno scoiattolo segue ancora
il profumo della neve

end of winter
a squirrel still follows
the scent of snow

 

vento di primavera
il riparo di una foglia
da qualche parte

spring wind
the shelter of a leaf
somewhere

third

go on keep at it
till everything fits into two rooms or

 

stand out in the hall and look in and refuse to go in
either room

cocktail party . . .
the truth
will set you free

THE WORD 

The word Was deferred

But I
Read delivered

*

Let’s dissolve One another

Let’s come Apart together

*

An atmosphere Of gender

As practice Or event

*

A moment Of discovery

Disguised as An ellipse

*

Word has It that

Throughlines wind And comingle

*

The word Was confused

But I
Was aroused

*

Our weathers Of love

And climate Of erosion

*

Lucia Cardillo

iris candidi . . .
perdonando a me stessa
tutti gli errori

white iris . . .
I forgive myself
for every mistake

 

margheritina . . .
piccolo cuore giallo s
ul marciapiede

daisy . . .
tiny yellow heart
from the sidewalk

покупаю мандарины
падают в кошелёк
снежинки

 

buying tangerines —
snowflakes fall into
my wallet

свежий снег
старушка подчёркивает
даты на календаре

fresh snow
an old lady underlines
dates in the calendar

 

Antonio Mangiameli

 

In the basement of my apartment building lives the lady who worked for many years in the porter’s lodge. I am very fond of her, she has known me since I was a child. In the evening, when I come back home, I often go to say hello to her. I know her habits, I know that at the time of my coming back home, she is cooking for dinner, which is always the same, very frugal.

a hot broth
a spoonful of rice
