By Davide Trame

They happen, they vibrate simply in a conversation,
now you are talking and telling me things
I've never thought about,
the wave of enthusiasm in your voice
rolls towards me, it's quiet and steady,
it's a matter of attention - I think - of following
the twinges of the glare's thread on the sea,
the ripples that beckon and linger
between the folds of our limited time
and the blue gales of all that might be,
tomorrow is someone swimming over there,
we feel stung by the smooth rhythm of his arms
and he's waving this time, not drowning,
there's no tension, no anguish in the palm of his hand,
he just wants to catch our attention, he'll reach us
when we are ready, and there'll be time,
time for the long trail of smoke after the brief candle,
time for the memory-trail of our faces in the sky,
tomorrow, the day after, the next life.
