Treasure Island

Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

(September 30th 1959 / Genoa (Italy))

Only One Song To Only One Woman

In the Edward Hopper's oil painting, beyond the gas station,
The forest is dark and the road leads up to there.
While the postman always rings twice Jessica Lange is depressed,
Clara Calamai is even poorer in Ossessione.
In Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart helps Ingrid Bergman to take a plane,
There was no hurry as time went by.
Von der kaserne von der grossen tor
Hanna Shygulla helps Giancarlo Giannini to escape the nazis,
He finds a new sweetheart in Swiss,
Hanna sets out towards the exit taking to her stiletto heels.
Many people can't maintain their positions.
Many stories happen in this time of high cost gas and professional armies.
The last female figure was really one of the Freud's relatives,
Only one song to only one woman at a time.
Only one story, our story. Wie einst Lili Marleen.

    Not that I'm very much familiar to the characters of History you refer in your poems yet I admire your presentation of real life events of the past in flesh and blood of a poetry. Perhaps, a noble job is done which will be better appraciated
    by some other else after me.

    So many beloved personages in an interesting compilation. Building a poem on references to other genres is an interesting technique, your trick-knack. It makes the poems sound retrospective. I remember me that movie with Hanna Shygullaand the song of the popular Lili Marlene. It is all revived in my mind. Bravo! (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
