Altrove

Esiste in questo partire dall’Italia
un poco di Kavafis,
un poco di Tornatore,
la crepa mattutina di Mutis,
la supplica alla madre di PPP,
mani sporche di terra ed argilla.
Aestus! Maledetta annata!

Ma c’è del tempo

per la pioggia tropicale di Mafate,
azulejos e bianco di Cadice,
disegni “adagio”
e una barca di fotografie
da farvi arrivare.

A mia “Madre”
Per sempre tuo.
Pietro

Elsewere

There is in this leaving Italy
a bit of Kavafis,
a bit of Tornatore,
the morning crack of Mutis,
the plea to the mother of PPP,
hands soiled with earth and clay.
Aestus! Cursed year!

But there is time

for the tropical rain in Mafate,
azulejos and the white of Cadiz,
drawings “adagio”
and a boat of photographs
to send you

To my “Mother”
forever yours
Pietro
