Three Poems from Tirrenide

*  *  *

the arsonist runs around with a bottle
and cigarettes in his head and fails
to turn his head off
the extreme work of the rapids against
give me my arch of the day

*  *  *

over the swollen river
the reeds' raised heads
the arch holding off the flood
holding off the void and the fullness
and the finitude of form

*  *  *

a rapid river stream
about to become a recluse
to clear my mind
but there's always a hole

Translated from the Italian by Tony Kitt
