12 Degrees & Skiving

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

NaPoWriMo • 19 April • The Watchful / Il Vigile

and who was she
but the very watchful
since the workings of her ears
had been given over to the woodwitch
one hears much more with the eyes
not greedily,
the way beauty is gobbled up
somewhere to the left of that
and up a bit
sampled, savoured
twitch of jaw, of skin
a shout, a wail
and sighs escape
from lips at rest
from lashes on cheeks
from teeth on teeth
and the iris, most of all
poured from the soul
wine or vinegar
songs to rival
sirens and spring birds

~ ~ ~

e chi era lei
ma molto vigile
poiché il funzionamento delle sue orecchie
era stato dato verso la strega di bosco
si sente molto di più con gli occhi
non avidamente,
il modo in cui la bellezza è divorato
ma in qualche parte al sinistra di tale
e sopra un po ‘
assaggiata, assaporata
un ticchio della mascella, della pelle
un grido, un lamento
e sospira fuga
dalle labbra a riposo
da cigli sulle guance
dai denti sui denti
e l’iride, soprattutto
versato da l’anima
vino o aceto
canzoni per competere
le sirene e gli uccelli primaverili
