filo rosso
© 2008 Guido Monte



(Swans - September 21, 2009)  

La grande règle
Ce qui est digne d'etre aimé

con in bocca il sapore dell'odio
but in your mouth taste of hate
caused by unavoidable solitude
per la facilità alla solitudine

where all life dies, death lives

mais je n'espère pas
io non mori', e non rimasi vivo
not died yet, but I don't live

thinking of thousands
of unknown African immigrants
                                                died in the Sicilian Channel —

everything tastes like tears




The author thanks Giusi Chirco.
