12 Degrees & Skiving

what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice

NaPoWriMo • 16 April • Santa Fiora II

taut rope vipers
startle reel backwards
glitter from unlit spaces

old men line the wall,
recall lunched laconic
nod heavy eyed

cats deify terraces above
sun espaliers, sousing
till it stalks low

heats the ears of Labro
leaves all cooling
tall-shadowed yawning

~ ~ ~

vipere, le corde tese
spaventano, bobinano indietro
scintillano dagli spazi fosci

i vecchietti si allineano il muro,
richiamano, già pranzato, laconico
annuiscono, i loro occhi sono pesanti

i gatti glorificano le terrazze sopra,
il sole è ingraticciato, sta marinando
fino a che insegue giù

riscalda le orrechie di Labro
lascia tutti di raffreddamento
sbadigliando, con l’ombre distese


Tell me wotcha reckon
