Glances

January 6, 2022

I have often imagined that glances 

survive the act of seeing 

as if they were poles, 

measuring rods, lances

thrown in a battle.

Then I think that in a room 

one has just left

those same lines must stay behind

sometime suspended there and crisscrossed  

in the equilibrium of their design

untouched and overlaid like the wooden pieces

in a game of pick-up-sticks.

 

From “Nature e venature (1987)” by Valerio Magrelli

Translated by Dana Gioia 

In “Poetry”, October-November, 1989
