COME

by Alex Valente.

Original Italian by Patrizia Valduga (1953-), ‘Vieni, entra e coglimi’

Come, come in and pluck me, pick me, try me…
squeeze me free me tease me…
stoke me code me renew me.
Increase… decrease… lose me.

Cook me boil me bite me… hatch me.
Then fuse and confuse me… scare me…
hurt me, lose me and find me, help me.
Hunt me… char me burn me scald me.

Tighten me and loosen me, lower me and raise me.
Tame me, destroy me then dismay me…
Pry me devour me… show me.

Tie me drown me and finally destroy me
Lull me and again enter me… retry me.
Crown me. Deify me. Silver me.
