#GloPoWriMo 2017 18 – for no apparent reason

sliding
down my scale
i lie if i say
that with effort
i thought of you
and remembered you

this sliding
is nothing more
than the lawful child
of my distraction
coupled
in betrayal
with your name
in the infinite wherever
where i buried
your neuron-recess

for no apparent reason

[Original Italian by Manuela Dago, ‘Senza Apparente Giustificazione’ in Poesie che non mi stavano da nessuna parte]
