LOS ANGELES

Poem by Liliana Isella.

You
you saw my theethless time
suns crushed on pearled ceilings
twilights in line on a highway of ice

You
life that cannot be stopped
by a ring of steel without its bride
by a white crinkled veil over a pillow of needles

You
empty promises under bridges of ocean
night of the seagull that slashed its wings
twisted crossroads of sunburst backs

You
now and ever, Los Angeles
your candles fire dreams
and all your stars go up in smoke.

Poem by Liliana Isella.

Tu
che hai visto il mio tempo senza denti
soli spappolati su soffitti di perle
tramonti in fila su asfalti di ghiaccio

Tu
vita che non puo` essere fermata
da un anello d’acciaio senza sposa
dal velo d’un cuscino pieno d’aghi

Tu
promesse sotto ponti d’oceano
notti di gabbiani senza ali
crocevia di schiene assolate

Tu
ora e sempre, Los Angeles
le tue candele accendono sogni
e tutte le tue stelle vanno in fumo.

Poesia di Liliana Isella.
