Here we are, the unwanted.
Astronauts sculpted on a portal
of a thousand years old.
Restless jingles of an old advertisement,
uncomfortable shoes, like raw fries.
It’s necessary to find a reason for the puddles
which is not the dropped ground.
Stop calling the night passer-by lady
Stop calling the man with dirty cheeks a
We were embarrassed after that night on a bench.
It was the game,
the game we didn’t choose.
It’s a matter of belonging to something you don’t belong to,
and, by the way,
the only way to be.
Incarnate of a dreaming soul,
bums eternally estranged.
What is to be
is certainly what is not real.
It’s a path to reach what is not,
killing the useless concept of reality.
The butterfly becomes a chrysalis.
Father Christmas dressed in black.
It is not.
It is free.
I’m confusing the boundaries
in an ecstatic group dance.
Wildness and visceral feelings.
Against the logic,
which is not the way to the truth.
James Marchiori is an Italian born, Dublin based poet and writer. He wrote his first verses at nine years old, and since then, being part of prestigious cultural organizations, he has been collecting various literary awards across Italy, London, Barcelona, and Prague. He’s also been awarded at the European Parliament in Brussels for one of his poems. At twenty-one years old he published his first book of selected poems and, by his 28th birthday, other two poetry anthologies and short stories were out. His professional career brought him around the world from London to Los Angeles and New York, but he never stopped writing and studying philosophy and literature always taking tons of notes with him, no matter where his job experiences were heading to. His last novel, ‘To My Beloved Heart’ is a tribute to the master, Edgar Allan Poe, his primary source of inspiration, and 2019 will also see his first English collected poems anthology; he’s also currently working on a crime story set in Dublin, Ireland, with fragments of gothic, occult and supernatural elements. Bohemia incarnate, a soul devoted to Surrealism and Poetry.
