Martina

In her childhood, when she closed her eyes to think
about the wish she would make, while blowing at
the white seed1 that she was holding in her hands
to see it fly,
 
she always saw herself in a house with big windows,
having breakfast at the porch with an elegant man.
Now she lives alone in a flat with a sad-looking cat
and she has a table which is too big.
 
But today, stepping out of the door, she feels stronger.
She walks up and down Les Rambles2 in a red dress.
She will buy a book and she will write him a note34
And, without wrapping it up, she will keep it for him.
 
Halfway through supper her sister takes out the cava5.
Before she proposes a toast, unexpectedly asks her
to become the godmother of the little one,
who’d arrive before Christmas.
 
When she weeps with joy, she cannot help
imagining that maybe one day during supper
she could also take out the cava
and, all thrilled, she’d tell them
that she’s finally found him.
 
But she doesn’t know yet
that years pass by so quickly and one day
a cracked mirror will say: "you’re getting old",
and loneliness will be her faithful lover.
 
But today, stepping out of the door, she feels stronger.
She walks up and down Les Rambles in a red dress.
She will buy a book and she will write him a note.
And, without wrapping it up, she will keep it for him.
