Perch' io t'abbia guardato di menzogna



your eyes & ears have witnessed miracles

beautiful people moving through the sky

touching the earth with nothing but their feet

& fragile webs of interactive sound


you have digested folded leaves of light

& stood on ground that moves under the stars

you have felt the full force of her beauty

& failed to climb up into utterance


you have wasted hours hunched up in the dark

repackaging your indignation

unravelling the motives of strangers


establishing which speck has precedence

but now it is time to look up & speak

about these days which touch her & sing
