And Then

by Alessandro Spinazzi

I like things
things about life
making a way
rolling
among menacing
obstacles
to land
at a plate
a glass
a pillow

and then
those two magical
notes
from the loudspeaker
a few dripping
lines
on the page
a thick
silence
on the screen
such an intense
pleasure
almost as if
an imaginary god
would break
smiling
on the scene.
