Il Nero Sotto Gli Occhi


L'ho visto nello specchio
il nero che mi cerchia gli occhi,
come due manate di carbonaio
in un vestito chiaro.
Non so da quanto tempo
sento un fischio nell'orecchio,
come se dovesse venire un treno
che non arriva mai.
Porto dentro di me il Cristo,
e si e no me ne accorgo
che il mondo mi brucia come piede di asino,
vado appresso a un campanello
come il prete con l'ostia stretta sul cuore
e che mai si stancherebbe di andare,
pensando che in un altro paese
c'è uno che sta' per morire.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
