A MAN WHO BELIVES HIMSELF A GENTLEMAN / Poem by Maria Miraglia

Poem by Maria Miraglia

 

A MAN WHO BELIVES HIMSELF A GENTLEMAN

It gives me fun
to watch men
observe their ways

They all think to be good actors
even though neither Visconti
nor Rossellini would ever chosen them
not even as extras

How many their smiles
false and mischievous
handshakes and
vain hypocrisies
but also knowing the interlocutor
that all this is just a game
old and foolish
he soon enters the part
accepting praises bows
reverent greetings and
many more he reciprocates

He brings his smiles
up to home where
closed the door behind his back
gets rid of the mask
of a man who believes himself a gentleman
and of those he met
plague and horns
begins to tell
