Alda Merini – Peace / Pace

John Liston Byam Shaw, the Woman and the Man the Serpent, 1911

Peace overflowing from heart
sometimes can turn into blood,
your love
touches me sometimes
and then evolves into drama…

(Transl. by D. Foglia)

La pace che sgorga dal cuore
e a volte diventa sangue,
il tuo amore
che a volte mi tocca
e poi diventa tragedia…
