(Swans - May 18, 2009)  

mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,

I got lost in a dark wood

la vieillerie poétique avait une bonne part dans mon alchimie du verbe.

Je m'habituai à l'hallucination simple

Je me crois en enfer, donc j'y suis

I think I am in hell, therefore I am



Two fragments translated into English by Vitalba Scibilia.

Picture: Muro, by Guido Monte (2009).
