MILO DE ANGELIS - "The Window"

In the hotel
room, behind the curtains
that show a subdued square
for the first time
“I would only like to repeat, you know, nothing else”
this afternoon
it’s impersonal, does not apply to anyone
does not select, is already a land
full of guests, who complete
its started work
in someone else
as that bridge stays there
calm, no longer
what unites two banks.
Translated by Lawrence Venuti.
