CORONAVIRUS
to Paola
 
I thought I was
Already giving you
All the love
One heart has to offer
That which fills the universe
And feels tight
Within its borders
If it ever had
But your face
Covered by that mask
Which so much said
Of the time we live
Of our fears
And the enemy so far unknown
Revealed I loved you
A thousand times as much
You looked at me
Talked to me
My heart overflowing
Of old feelings
And new
Like the waters of two rivers
Going to converge
And grew in me
Silent but overbearing
The will to break the rule
Come to you close and
Clasp you tight to my chest
Like so many time
Make you feel love
Sweet and deep
Without cracks
Without danger
Without limits and
I remembered you child
When asking me
How much I loved you
I used to answer… the whole world
And the little stars with it
Today I would tell you
As much as many worlds
And all the galaxies around.
 
 
 
AN ANGEL PASSING BY
 
Making a long flight
on earth
wonders an angel
will men understand
how important it is
a handshake
a hug
a kiss
but also just
a pat on the shoulder
Then he looks down at
the deserted streets
the empty parks and
the people locked down
in their houses
what are they thinking about
the angel asks himself again
will they take advantage of the lesson
when all is over
or will they turn back to fighting each other
