Translation of poem by Antonia Pozzi


Words – glass

that unfaithfully

reflects my sky –

I thought of you

after sunset

in a darkened street

when a pane fell to the stones

and its fragments at length

spread shattered light —

[Translation by Nick Benson, from Antonia Pozzi, Parole. Milano: Garzanti, 1989, p. 146. Other translations from the poetry of Antonia Pozzi appear here.]
