È PIOVUTO QUEL GIORNO

written by: Izabella T. Kostka

 

Estese pianure tra le maree
della vita che non sa perdonare,
lunghi corridoi affollati di domande
e risposte che affondano nel vuoto,

mi ricordo le nostre dita
aggrovigliate come fili di ferro,
legami spezzati e affetti a terra
gettati come cocci d'un vaso.

È piovuto quel giorno in Piazza Duomo...

Si è infilata la felicità
tra i piccioni sulle grondaie
è volata via in fretta
col vapore della metropolitana.

THAT DAY IT RAINED

written by: Izabella T. Kostka

 

Extensive plains among the tides
of life that does not know how to forgive,
long corridors crowded with questions
and answers that sink into the void,

I remember our fingers
tangled like wires,
broken bonds and feelings thrown
on the ground like shards of a vase.

It rained that day in Cathedral Square...

Happiness was hidden
among the pigeons on the gutters,
she flew away quickly
with the steam of the subway.
