De Rerum Maldestria

24 Mag
Per tutti quelli che mi ritengono dannatamente maldestra e imbranata.. (oltretutto a ragione).. e per tutte quelle che come me non lasciano passare uno spigolo senza prima averci sbattuto contro!
tiè:
 
DE RERUM MALDESTRIA

colpi, botte, gomitate
porte aperte od accostate
angolini maledetti
contro cui sbattere i denti

bende garze cerottini,
nasi rotti e mugolini
ghiaccio e pianti furibondi
per le nostre notti insonni

chi ci guarda.. sconsolate
"ma che povere imbranate"
ma non sa che Maldestrìa
equivale a Fantasia!

The Day we went to the Sea – Tishani Doshi

13 Mag
The day we went to the sea
mothers in Madras were mining
the Marina for missing children.
Thatch flew in the sky, prisoners
ran free, houses danced like danger
in the wind. I saw a woman hold
the tattered edge of the world
in her hand, look past the temple
which was still standing, as she was —
miraculously whole in the debris of gaudy
South Indian sun. When she moved
her other hand across her brow,
in a single arcing sweep of grace,
it was as if she alone could alter things,
bring us to the wordless safety of our beds.
