by: Aldo Quagliotti

I appreciate days among dandelions

breathing in the briny hue

whilst the cliff stands in the way

certainties flake off, goals even worse

everything is lively, once more

tasting like lavender

the same sauffron I battled with

colours my hands, I’m gently stroking

the rose-tinted flower’s uterus

all I can recall is

the clanking noise of the washing machine

where my parents conceived me

adamantly insisting

in having an extra rinse

Love must be the Great Flood

a tender eel, a rolling wave

swimming through our blood

until you are not the same
