GLI ALBERI, PER ESEMPIO

osservazione in Febbraio, il 22

Costantino Belmonte

 

Fronde di testimoni, ecco, per esempio

gli alberi.

Su quali

fondali

devastati stanno imperturbabili. Assediati

da quante vite

brute si schiomano. E non

se ne vanno. In autunno,

per stanchezza,

sfogliano.

Agli

alberi, seriamente, non importa.

THE TREES, FOR EXAMPLE

a February observation, the 22nd

Costantino Belmonte

 

Canopies of witnesses, well, for example

the trees.

On whose

devastated

seabeds they stand unwavering. Besieged

for so many

brute lives they defoliage. And they

do not depart. In autumn,

from weariness,

they deleaf.

For

trees, seriously, don’t care.
