There are few men
who choose the woman they know they love.
Like him, who in the meantime continues to make love with you.
Not a problem
not a need.
Only explosion vibration passion
It is to watch you repressing every instinct
in a flavour that you love to keep in your mouth,
little by little the wind becomes icy
out of the wet window.
You prefer to be her
You prefer to be the other.
Annika Pettini (Italy, 1990-), from the collection Luci d’Autunno 2018, translated by Slow Words, originally published (in Italian) on: https://zeldazonk22.blogspot.com/
