THIS POEM IS CALLED

by Alex Valente

Original Italian by Francesca Genti (1975 – ), ‘Questa Poesia si Intitola’

the gutter punk blue.

it’s for you.
and it behaves badly.

it throws tantrums
causes trouble all over
asks unwanted questions.

it asks you with big puppy dog eyes:

why?
why did you do that?

did you really have to?

it is a curse
it is your poison.

(I made a banner against you).
