Andres Wendolain


Your accusations,
your reproaches, again.
.......................While I take them apart
as I can, one by one,
quoting facts, names, dates,
while I again count up on my fingers my two,
three, four good points,
and shout my life out in your face
you say nothing: you look at me.

The ears that are red, the veins
swelling in the neck – what
are you looking at? I know, I know that goodness
is not like this.

But doesn’t it rouse your pity
to see howevery day I am here imitating it?

Umberto Fiori
Translation: Alistair Elliot


Le vostre accuse, i vostri
rimproveri, di nuovo.
..........................Mentre li smonto
come posso, uno a uno,
citando fatti, nomi, date,
mentre riconto sulle dita i miei due,
tre, quattro meritie
vi abbaio sul muso la mia vita
non dite niente: mi guardate.

Le orecchie rosse, le vene
gonfie sul collo
– cosa guardate? Lo so, lo so che il bene
è diverso.

Ma non vi fa pietà
vedere come
ogni giorno son qua
a fargli il verso?
