On the train

We haven’t moved for ten minutes. Vietato attraversare i binari Do not cross the railway lines I read the signs Back and forth, While the soft music Of the melodious background noise Explodes like a punch In my face as the Frecciarossa train Knocks me out at 200 mph Of my torpid contemplation of the […]

The Great Path*

Bee hotel yawning between the holes glancing at open fields north wind blows snow eating our frozen fingers They’ll warm up by the nightfall a Chinook greets beyond the great river We speed up our steps under the hangover red clouds the summer is preening I could hear it in the wind and the bees move into their new home my grandfather smiles beyond the […]

Shaman dance

I travelled through the glowof your eyes,on our heightened lifewave.I took over allyour vibesthrough several cultures,in a city of a continentour wordson a third language levelon a timeless journey.You kissed the deviland took you on his mysteriousroads where in the smell of sweatyou danced till dawn.I was just watching at you, Throughon an inverted telescope. I saw him take possession of you, with tricks, because I know him.His slippery, slimy, deeppath,that will […]

Dear Christmas

(In memory of Jack Kerouac) The wallet is flat now, how many things to spend on how many gifts! For me, every day is Christmas and all food is a pleasure. 10 grams of happiness, 20 grams of smile, 30 grams of love, always my festive meal. The system of trembling meat spins in the night, chasing the man. Fish, turkey, pork, somewhere a […]

In safe arbour

In memory of my father In the feathery blue of a fluffy could that somebody painted in the sky today, I smelled the fume of your tobacco pipe while veiled in lost sentiments. I sneaked out, away fromthe blue mirrorsof your eyes, just like an uninvited guest.But I kept a cloud for myself, a reflection […]

They are Marching

Cold, in a fog getting thicker, in a timelessness gnawed by hunger, they rest their muddy shoes, loaded with the cry of children. Their feet bask on the asphalt of a world thought to be a dream, waiting for awakening, among the naked walls of tribulations. They murmur prayers silently on a garland of  drops of their sweat. Nothing else but […]

A Feeling

Your stare at poppy seed sized people saying farewell while you rule your seatin the power of the fifth gear sinking deep in your senses.There are red clouds on the horizon, reflections in the setting sun. Your trip, your sped up present escape to a certain future followed by white lines road signs, that are […]

The Return of the Hermetist

The scent of citrus trees immerses the rainy night.The summer breeze gets lostamong the dark streets, in the clamour of the pubs,and gets to meet the old stranger.The times of pleasure will be in vain,Chinese men will sell their pizza then.You are waiting to recall the beginningor the end.Try to forget your fearof whereyour path […]

On Road 30

That’s what I needed.Foot brake, parking brake.Shift after stop.The falling sunlighton the car’s bodymakes me dizzy.I sit in dripping sweatThe afternoon is toweringWe turn at the Death Curve. how could you have simply left meinside my memorytelling me meaningless sentencesjourney after journey, maybebecause I’m still youngSometimeson the road aloneneither far nor cloes to each otherWe […]
