He has light trees as helium, hard earths

as conscience.

He dreams opiate marmots while

the white of the woods changes colour to gas.

He abandons the intentions and

cleans well the formulas.



Alberto Pellegatta (Italy, 1978), from L’Ombra della Salute (Mondadori, Milan, 2011) translated by Diana Marrone
