Buona visione a voi

Marco Casavecchi

Buona vision a voi

che aspettate il trucco del pagliaccio

buona visione

guardate nello specchio

mastica il niente mordendo il vuoto

buona visione

inizia il trucco

e qualcuno attende a volte impaziente

buona visione

il colore di una goccia per schiarire gli sguardi

buona visione

e si rimette a nuovo

e nessuno saprà come era ridotto prima

e nessuno saprà come aveva fatto prima

buona visione

il clown ha finito di truccarsi adesso è pronto per il trucco

buona visione a voi che aspettate masticando l’attesa

Happy viewing to you

Marco Casavecchi

Happy viewing to you

who await the jester’s charade

happy viewing

look in the mirror

he chews on nothing gnaws away at the void

happy viewing

let the charade begin

and some await at times impatient

happy viewing

the colour of a drop to clear their vision

happy viewing

and he’s as good as new

and no-one will know how bad he looked before

and no-one will know how he had done it before

happy viewing

the jester has finished putting on his make-up the charade can begin

happy viewing to you who await gnawing away the time
