The New Doctor Livingstone

Rating: 5.0
Meanwhile, try doing something else.
Leave a blank margin in your diary.
Night walker in the city,
a letter has been sent in your name;
a correspondence you believed broken off
returns with mysterious tie-ups;
consider your fidelity to the past.
From this point of view
a shared experience makes its way,
we saunter through Rome,
an extraordinary, most ancient city in the frame.

Translation: 2009, Ron Banerjee

Another poem by G. Neri from the collection ''L’aspetto occidentale del vestito'' (Italian text) : 3. Il cattivo tempo è alle porte e consiglia la prudenza, come comanda nostra madre Chiesa. In concreto il temporale minacciò di far volare un numero straordinario di carte. Risultava sempre più difficile incontrare il professore, costantemente impegnato nella correzione di qualche compito. E avendolo visto per caso: “Il dottor Livingstone, suppongo” disse, mentre gli tendeva la mano attraversando vasti deserti di tavolini rossi e sedie impagliate. *
