Lunedì Poesia: your best jeans / i tuoi jeans migliori

I Tuoi Jeans Migliori

ti ombre, mi illumina
il lato freddo, il latto sottovento,
stiamo in piedi, ben camminati

in terre dove le idee
deliniate, i piani biforcuti,
e i giorni sorvegliati significano

indossa i tuoi jeans migliori ora:
il tempo si inclina
canticchia, lieto, tranquillo

e gongola di capire
i tuoi pensieri dolcissimi
sono lenti come il suo peso

e come l’esca di tempo
il destino tormentato attorciglia
in attesa nei geni

quindi, indossa i tuoi jeans migliori
poichè il tempo si inclina
canticchia, lieto, tranquillo

Wear Your Best Jeans Now
[English version originally published at 12C & Skiving]

shade you, light me
cool side, leeside
we stand well-walked

in lands where chalked
ideas, forked plans,
and hawked days means

wear your best jeans
now: time leans in
she keens, glad, low

and gloats to know
your thoughts so sweet
as slow her weight

and, as time’s bait,
harried fate curls
in wait, in genes.

wear your best jeans
for time leans in,
she keens, glad, low.
