go butterflies

go birds of prey

among the high walls

of bodies

houses burned

by hatred

there’ll be

much fire for us

there’ll be

much ice

 

Ferruccio Brugnaro (Italy, 1936 -)

 

(this poem opened the book The Days Will Come, C.C. Marimbo  PO Box 933, 2011 and has been translated from Italian by the poet Jack Hirschman. Slow Words invited both the poets to join one of our readers’ club in Venice, Italy)
