It doesn’t stop`raining now and the noise
which enters isn’t only of the water.
You never had white hair
they were just threads fallen from your sweater
I absently picked them up in the car
on the hills of our Montefeltro
now I also understand that also pain chooses
its own colours
to contaminate our memories.
LAURA CORRADUCCI (Pesaro, Italy 1974-)
From: “Il Canto di Cecilia e altre poesie”, Raffaelli Editore, Rimini, 2015
