CORNERS, JOURNAL, TRAVEL March 1, 2019

Months of marble and silk

Warm bread and instant coffee

Nights in dorms sharing your sleep with strangers and tangling dreams

Ideas like ash on the balcony, talking about nothing and about it all

And long sunsets

The money running low and the wine at the end of the day

The planes we almost missed

The skin almost sunburnt

Tired feet and eyes filled

But most of all

These months have been a full heart.

Mesi di marmo e di seta

Pane caldo e caffe istantaneo

Notti in camerate a dividere il sonno con sconosciuti e sogni intrecciati

Idee come cenere sulla terrazza dove si parlava del niente,

dove si parlava un po’ del tutto

E lunghi tramonti

I soldi contati e il vino a fine giornata

Gli aerei quasi persi

La pelle quasi bruciata

I piedi stanchi e gli occhi pieni

Ma soprattutto

Questi mesi

Sono stati cuore che si riempiva.
