Together

Poem By Paolo Ruffilli

Together. Holding each other's
bodies gently, uncovered
to touch, to taste
debased
by eyes, by hands.
A sense lost
regained
in a slow falling
of a weight, letting it go
from time
to time, it bends
surrendering to its flight.
At the bottom,
stretched out
slipping into a grip, mingling
yielding to the tight bond.

Translation:James Laughlin

Love

Thus, I suddenly
catch myself in the mirror
in a stifling embrace
while I project myself

Journey

I know what I have felt
again and again
and never has it been
something abstract

Tunnel

And all at once
deep in the tunnel
that goes on and on,
in the dead air

Whenever I Go

Then, at last
I get moving
notwithstanding
the urge to stay

Nowhere

How many times
have I left
before daybreak or
at dead of night

Desire

I think of myself
whose hand caresses
the willing body
lying open to any assault
