Received Order Given Expect Results.

Distruggendo Petra, in fondo,
dove tutto è uno e più.

L’ultima volta, era il tuo compleanno…
rilassati i vincoli, sembro (?) più vicina.

In quella casa, nel quartiere di Cordova, si difendono le stelle
più in là, qualcuno si lamenta: “Tutto si è rotto nel mondo, non resta che il silenzio“.
Bisogna crederci, lo dice Lorca. E il libro è tuo.

Lei non mi ascolta, non può.

Dal semilunare fino alla dodicesima,
(non ricordo quasi più il motivo):
racchiuso in uno spazio affine.

Grana ultrafine, sciolta nel fiume,
lo stesso abisso tra Ulisse – rivolto a Krubera –
e le sirene, verso lo zenith,
السَّمْت speculari,
schiena contro schiena.

Gli ho ricordato che Jim Morrison è morto,
ho bisogno di musica nuova: nanocrystalline material,

dopo… troppi numeri,
non giocavo con le Barbie, arredavo solo le loro stanze.

cerchi una lettera, trovi tutto.

“Straciłam kilka bogiń w drodze z południa na północ, / a także wielu bogów w drodze ze wschodu na zachód. / Zgasło mi raz na zawsze parę gwiazd, rozstąp się niebo. / Zapadła mi się w morze wyspa jedna, druga. / Nie wiem nawet dokładnie, gdzie zostawiłam pazury […]”
Premowiene w biurze znalezionych rzeczy – Wisława Szymborska

Rapsodie, 2DayBit and new projects!

Some of my poems, two unpublished until now, are featured in the June issue of  Le reti di Dedalus, in the Audio Poetry section.

Last week I was in Rome for a new photo set with photographer Paolo Del Frate and the make-up artist Deborah Tufano, I’ve seen the previews: cool stuff online soon!

I’m writing something different from poetry lately. It is a rather long work especially for the endless historical research that I am conducting in order to give a good base to the final product, in spite of this I think that it will be ready by the end of August. I found the perfect place for writing in Campania, a very nice café where the homemade ice cream is great. I admit that sometimes (always!) I miss the café in New York or Milan, but here there are fewer distractions. However, I scheduled a trip to Milan next month for some collaborations (and I’m so happy to meet all my friends!).

After the release of my last visual project #BornToBeVirtual (Oct. 2013), I’m also working on two new digital series.

One last thing: the blog of the new project 2DayBit is officially online, it is updated by me and my friend Alice. Yes, I know, someone will say: “Does the world really need another fashion blog?”. Well, do not worry: it’s not exactly a fashion blog, let’s say – for now – that the “fashion thing” is just a “cover”.
A cover for what? You will see in the coming months!

A huge thanks to all my supporters!
