Estate 2012

...eri straordinaria come la mia capacita' di non farmi capire. dicevi
che ci sarebbe stato tempo per decidere come... per crescere dove
anche per volare. ora sai che non era vero.

Summer 2012

... you were as extraordinary as my ability not to make my self be understand. You were saying
that there would have been time to decide how ... to grow where
and also to fly. now you know it was not true. 

la nostra casa ci ha dimenticato.
passandoci davanti in macchina, ho visto
quanto sono state lievi le nostre vite
per non aver lasciato traccia.
Ted Hughes

e popola di canti remoti i rami.
Giuseppe Ungaretti

 

a E.E.

Colpa la mia superbia.
Credere che la mia poesia ti avrebbe trasformata nel suo canto.
Colpa la mia debolezza, che ha ceduto alle tue forme e al tuo candore, accecata dalla mia visione, ho obliterato me stessa.
Nella polvere dipinsi un quadro magnifico in cui tu danzavi tra le bianche betulle della tua terra;
e nei suoi cieli che si perdono in orizzonti azzurri, appesi nella cornice di nubi ventose il tuo ritratto, bellissimo.
Ma ora tutto cade, insieme alle mie parole vane, nel vuoto, nel Nulla in cui ti sei trasfigurata.
Alla mia memoria, rimane il tuo fantasma senza volto.
Rimangono i luoghi dei nostri incontri, crudeli miraggi nel deserto degli anni che insieme abbiamo percorso.

Parigi, 13 Giugno 2014


Miserere Mei

"Miserère mei, Deus, secùndum magnam misericòrdiam tuam.
Et secùndum multitùdinem miseratiònum tuàrum, dele iniquitàtem meam.
Àmplius lava me ab iniquitàte mea,
et a peccàto meo munda me."

Salmo 51

Le Cirque - 2009

On this road, between a row of dying sycamore trees and busy trollies, Chinatown ends and the Kasbah of Milan begins. On the ruins of the Little School of Circus, the weeds grow as undisturbed as gypsy camps.
It was once a place where small children went to learn acrobatics, to expound on their creativity and relish in their childhood. On weekends, you would often see grandparents with red clown noses and grandchildren with their hair tangled with corriander, crowding the entrance of this little red and white tent.

The little school was evicted in 2007 by the City of Milan, in order to build a parking lot that is still not there.

In this crooked and badly overgrown area, where the Little School of Circus once was, there is still some poetry to be found. The poetry speaks of a tender, gentle, humane Milan that could be stolen from a Fellini movie, that now exists only in memory. This tiny tent provided a social function whose value was far greater than a multi-floor parking lot that is yet to exist, especially with another in construction less than 500 meters away.
