The color of the sky (Visioni del mondo)


What was the color of the sky?
Anyway, the sky swept toward me.
Meanwhile, life was wrongfully and barbarously sweet with me.

Di che colore era il cielo?
Ad ogni modo il cielo mi scivolò addosso,
mentre la vita era ingiustamente e crudelmente dolce con me.

(Andrea Battantier, Poetry, 2008)
