Longing for Summer...

Risultati immagini per estate

Notte d'estate

E' una bella notte d'estate
Tengono le alte case
aperti i balconi
del vecchio paese sulla vasta piazza.
Nell'ampio rettangolo deserto,
panchine di pietra, evonimi ed acacie
simmetrici disegnano
le nere ombre sulla bianca arena.
Allo zenit la luna, e sulla torre
la sfera dell'orologio illuminata.
Io in questo vecchio paese vo passeggiando
solo come un fantasma.

Fly on a Windshield

Risultati immagini per the lamb lies down

There's something solid forming in the air
And the wall of death is lowered in Times Square
No one seems to care
They carry on as if nothing was there

The wind is blowing harder now
Blowing dust into my eyes
The dust settles on my skin
Making a crust I cannot move in
And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway...

Ku Klux Klan serves hot soul food

Ku Klux Klan serves hot soul food and the band plays In the Mood
The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand
There's a smell of peach blossom and bitter almond
Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade
He knows, in a scent, you can bottle all you made
There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes
Smiling at the majorettes, smoking Winston cigarettes
And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home
With needles, needles and pins...

Echoes of the Broadway everglades

Risultati immagini per everglades

Echoes of the Broadway everglades,
With their mythical madonnas still walking in their shades
Lenny Bruce declares a truce and plays his other hand
Marshall McLuhan, casual viewing, head buried in the sand
Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ship sailing
Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline failing...

Charles Baudelaire, Poésies de jeunesse, IX


Ci-git qui, pour avoir par trop aimè les gaupes,
Descentit jeune encore au  royaume des taupes

Qui giace chi, avendo troppo amato le puttane,
calò ancor giovane nel regno delle talpe.
