a speck of water lettuce
on the frog’s eye

the secret life
of a saucer of milk
new moon

summer heat
the 2 a.m. taste
of this screen

She was old

and the dog’s leash
was long and leather.
e malamute in human years looked even older.
She bore out
as they got closer.
When I reached them
she stopped and I patted
her head, rubbed under her chin and along her mouth
that was dribbling.
I took a few steps
and when I turned around
I saw that she was bounding
a little.
at’s all it takes:
to be loved for a minute.

Il vento porterà via lontano queste
foglie, le lascerà cadere vicino a te.
Quando le prenderai nelle tue mani
ricorda di leggere le piccole poesie
scritte tra le nervature. Io sono lì.

The wind will carry away these leaves,
it will bring them close you.
When you take them in your hands
remember to read the little poems
written between ribs. There I am.
