The Poems

"L'età dell'uva" (Perrone, 2021)

Vedi, non restano che i nostri
frutti sulla tavola:
mia madre che li sbuccia; i loro
nomi che pendono dall'orlo
e cadono tra il pavimento e l'invisibile.

Ora all'uva basta un soffio per marcire
in fretta e diventare una preghiera.

You see, only our
fruits remain on the table:
my mother peeling them; their
names that hang from the brim
and fall between the floor and the invisible.

Now a breath is enough for grapes
to rot quickly and become a prayer.



*



Vorrei conoscere il mondo dei morti,
reclamarlo in una lingua senza storia
che non abbia una grammatica, ma possa
avverare tutto ciò che si pronuncia.

Mi usano per parlare a chi è rimasto,
vogliono che dica, rovesciandola,
la parola che non hanno mai trovato.

I'd like to know the world of the dead,
claim it in a language without history
that doesn't have a grammar, but can
make everything you say come true.

They use me to talk to whoever is left,
they want me to say, upside down,
the word they never found.
