You Mix Your Voice with the Fog Tonight

Written by Laura Corraducci

Translated from the Italian by the poet

Narrated by Bill Wolak


you mix your voice with the fog tonight

close the windows let the show be for me

I see you with your hands in black and white

the contours of your lips always shaded

a ghost who is passing by

to put the soul in a body who rejects her

I’m cut off as a shoot from the vine

dry wood with no fruit for September

the sirens of ships are like an orchestra

and I see the lights behind the hill

if you prayed for a farewell

that wouldn’t be so nice
