Tick Tock – May 28, 2014 (English – Italiano)

the clock

tick-tock
went my weary heart,
reflecting on ideas that started
floundering in my mind, as I watched
that line on the machine
tell me, that you were no more …
a stopped watch,
there would never be another …
tick tock

tic-tac
fece il mio cuore, stanco
riflettendo sulle idee che iniziarono
ad agitarmisi nella mente, mentre guardavo
quella linea sull’apparecchiatura
communicarmi, che non c’eri più
un orologio fermo,
non ci sarebbe stato mai più un altro
tic-tac

 

 


Written inspired by Valeriu D.G. Barbu’s poem Reversely

Enough Thanks already!

Enough Thanks already!

I read your poem
I must admit…
The first words that came
To mind were these:

When we are filled up to our gills
With all the stuff that makes us ill
They’ve taught us all how to say: No Thanks!
Because when we refuse, we should also apologize…
As though it’s something their doing for us
A good turn and not a form of abuse…
Filling our minds and hearts with
Junk…filling our souls with sour off-gone
gunk..

And if we learned to say…
Take all your crap away,
I’m not interested…
Take your publicity,
Your ads and your propaganda too!
And put it all up yours
With the rest of your consummerism
ideals that have made us sick!
Just say no: not No Thanks….
Just say a sweet honest straight forward:

Fuck off!
And have done with it all…
Wouldn’t that be nice?
