Vigil

“A whole night long
crouched close
to one of our men
butchered
with his clenched
mouth
grinning at the full moon
with the congestion
of his hands
thrust right
into my silence
I’ve written
letters filled with love
I have never been
so
coupled to life”

By Giuseppe Ungaretti
Written December 23, 1915

Veglia

“Un’intera nottata
buttato vicino
a un compagno
massacrato
con la sua bocca
digrignata
volta al plenilunio
con la congestione
delle sue mani
penetrata
nel mio silenzio
ho scritto
lettere piene d’amore.
Non sono mai stato
tanto
attaccato alla vita.”
