« Ho spesso immaginato che gli sguardi

sopravvivano all'atto del vedere

come fossero aste,

tragitti misurati, lance

in una battaglia.

 

Allora penso che dentro una stanza

appena abbandonata

simili tratti debbano restare

qualche tempo sospesi ed incrociati

nell'equilibrio del loro disegno

intatti e sovrapposti come i legni

dello shangai. » © 1987 Valerio Magrelli, From Nature e venature

 

« I've often imagined gazes

surviving the act of seeing

as if they were poles,

measured distances, lances

in battle.

 

Then I think of a room

just abandoned

where similar traces remain

for a time, suspended and intersecting

in the balance of their design

intact and overlapping, like

pick-up-sticks. » © Translation: 1991, Valerio Magrelli From: Nearsights (Translated by Anthony Molino)
