Written by Laura Garavaglia

Translated from Italian by Annarita Tavani

Narrated by Bill Wolak


Sometimes words are eyes

gazing at the world aslant.

Deep down they dig

different perspectives.

Sometimes, however, words

hover in mid air

and fail to reach

into the corners of life.

And verse is dust

in a beam of light.


Laura Garavaglia lives in Como. She is poet, translator, journalist, founder and president of “La Casa della Poesia di Como” and director of International Poetry
Annarita Tavani holds a PhD in English Studies (Linguisitcs) and presently collaborates with Università degli Studi, Bergamo.
