To take a train

by

Davide Riccio


To take a train between comers and goers
Knee to knee in some old coach
To unbosom oneself a little.

To look out thoughts you have in
The ballast runs as past does_
To withdraw into oneself a little.

Memoirs comfort at tatantatà rocking
On the ghost of a dear children’s lullaby.

From station to station
On guides of iron
To relax oneself at last
At the certainty of coming to a place.

Cardiacal contractions
Arterial pulsations roll on the railroad
And out of every tunnel

To be born again.


The crooner

by

Davide Riccio


Still irresolute in the presence of discretion
I stopped a crawler
There was waiting-room for doubts as to doubts

I sported my oak and took a pull of liquor
Raising to Halcyon Days lifelong to chase
So that on I chase them away

The crooner’s love-lorn like nicotians smell smoke
And she makes love to another man

Gentlemen mask feelings
Dioscuri comfort but Castor meanwhile
Will die for sure
Once again
Once again

I was not looking outside
It wa as I was looking my last on my double
Mirrored by the window-pane
Which amalgam of silver and paint
Was made of moon and night

I was a window-pane long way from life
I was a windy pain long way from you
Oh how the spirit can ache!

The crooner’s love-lorn like nicotians smell smoke
And she makes love to another man

Gentlemen mask feelings
Dioscuri comfort but Castor meanwhile
Will die for sure
Once again
Once again

I was two mirrors long way from you
You were two mirrors long way from me
