The New Doctor Livingstone
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.
