.nero su nero.

I have multiplied every word / I marked them black on the heart
folding them like the night in the moment before it explodes
and let it be dark skin on my convex body exposed
between you and the broken down ribs /

ho decimato ogni respiro / bianco
intriso di dis.gelo e anima smisurata
con fotogrammi di luna dipartendo altrove
fra scaglie di lingua inchiodate al costato
convulse come vermi
a flagellarmi poi dentro
di una memoria ormai fatta di legno
come un pugnale scarno che elude la vita

I have been pregnant with your every form /
a shelter of water for all your roots
I was shipwrecked and never welcomed to shore
a caterpillar never born with already broken wings
/ I was a fertile womb for your delirium and my umpteenth death / ©Runa
