The bench lovers series #2.

While I was in Stockholm I unconsciously took pictures of people sat in bench. When I developed all the films I realize to have some of “bench pictures”. This is the reason of this strange series. Than I find this beautiful poetry of an author from Bosnia, she is older as me and she is living in Italy as well, but unfortunately in her past passed the war. This series is a tribute to her.

 

The bench has moved

ohhhh, I’ve fallen on the yellow leaves

of this unseen autumn.

Aligi recited poetry

Fiore followed the wind.

Ideas in the vortex

Aligi opened my skull,

and threw my thoughts

right into Fiore’s face.

An immensity of space opened up,

infinity swallowed us.

We couldn’t stop our laughter.

Then the closed doors,

the fastened padlocks,

Aligi’s voice deaf,

Fiore’s flight broken.

Brightly lit streets,

flashy people,

shining legs,

decorated shoulders,

forced smiles,

hypocrisy on the walls.

And we in the different light,

outside the city,

far from our falseness.

(Elvira Mujcic)
