And I do not care

May 18, 2007


225 days under grass
and you know more than I.
they have long taken your blood,
you are a dry stick in a basket.
is this how it works?
in this room
the hours of love
still make shadows.

when you left
you took almost
everything.
I kneel in the nights
before tigers
that will not let me be.

what you were
will not happen again.
the tigers have found me
and I do not care.

[Charles Bukowsky, For Jane]

    Mi chiedevo: le poesie si riportano nella lingua originale o tradotte?

    Come preferisce chi le riporta, presumo…

    Alessandro ho letto la poesia anche se in questo momento non ho propriamente l’animo poetico. Ho pubblicato in entrambi i miei blog un video che credo ti interesserebbe anche se ritengo possibile che tu lo conosca già. Vieni a dare un’occhiata appena puoi. Un abbraccio.
