Poetry has legs, hands, a abdominal and a face, a special glance to make issues and males seem deeper, and occasionally to show away and not using a notice. Poetry is unpredictable. Its moods could annoy the poet, yet, regrettably, he has no selection. stick to me, says poetry, like a seductive siren, don't depend upon me, yet be my significant other for the life of a poem. Poetry chooses time, position and language. Poetry loves to come up, to conceal and to cover, revealing and concealing itself based on a mazy legislations. Poetry merits alterations, worried to reach at Ithaca, but in addition curious to choose up what has been jettisoned at the good way there. Ithaca is the pulse, the shape is the open sea of poets’ blood and lymph. Fly and Fall. Poetry invited me to go into the physique of a brand new language, to rearrange my international in new shades, tastes, sounds. mom Language is big-hearted. My verses, a small regiment of hunchbacks, have been generously welcomed and reworked. “We need to locate precise words”, says the Austrian poet Ingeborg Bachmann. it could actually take place, poet is familiar with his personal language too good to discover the simplicity of fact. The vacationing eye and soul, concentrating current, earlier and destiny within the very second: poetry occurs. examine your self, wearing one other language. each language has its personal metabolism. the recent, the by no means identified be aware: the magic note. name it! trap it! Make it turn into genuine back. each language has its personal real phrases and its personal lies. a few of them are welcomed one of the new symptoms and logos, a few needs to wait earlier than the door. each poem is a physique, a guy, a global, ready to entwine with fact. you could deeply comprehend a poem in a language you don’t be aware of. Its hidden fact should be blacker than black. You, reader, often is the mild. Poetry is communique past proof. Poetry tells mild and shadow, greatness and distress. ‘Give your phrases a that means, yet supply them additionally a shadow,’ says the poet Paul Celan. Don’t promote it. Set your self unfastened, yet don’t wander away within the palms of your loved one. Fly and Fall. a few poems came upon their manner into Italian, a few didn't. There are open areas, by no means empty ones. Poetry is sufferer. Poetry can fall in love, poetry should be unjust, poetry can fall ill and die and resurrect. Poetry wishes eyes and ears, hearts and souls. Poetry desires to inform and to go back and forth, wanting to meet the reader for whom it was once written for. Poetry has to be wanted, to be jam-packed with water and wine, love and hate, by no means with indifference. Poetry says: contact me. Poetry likes to examine itself in lots of masquerades. Poetry says: Come nearer. I include multitudes. Poetry desires to dance: within the mild, at the hours of darkness and within the half-light of our day-by-day paintings of residing and loving.
