The Western Look Of The Dress

for Giancarlo Majorino
Corso Donati, the Metro
burrows its various tunnels into the gardens;
roots that did not speak uselessly;
the bones of some provincial Roman;
and a fibre suitcase;
the rail tracks of the North Station.
I don't remember now all the details.
A time gone by runs off at the back of the trees.

Another poem by G. Neri from the collection ''L’aspetto occidentale del vestito'' (Italian text) : 1. L’aspetto occidentale del vestito (A Giancarlo Majorino) Corso Donati, il metrò scava diverse gallerie ai giardini radici che non dissero inutilmente le ossa di qualche romano in provincia e una valigia di fibra la ferrovia della stazione Nord, ora non ricordo tutti i particolari un tempo passato corre via dietro gli alberi. *
