and the poets put their music on!!

well, they crossed the door,

they looked inside,

some of them gave and got a big hug.

(some visited us for the second time, which means hugs were absolutely welcomed)

they brought along tea time

and a great wind all the way from the united kingdom.

their british-scottish bubble was so powerful and cheerful

that between the words and their bodies

if you paied close attention

you could have seen

the queen her self,

james bond dressed as sean connery

winnie the pooh

and some fish and chips wrapped with yesterday’s newspaper.

words flew around

were written and rewritten

always black on white

each one of the writers with her own hand writing

signing her personal voice

in transparent and light phrases.


they wrote water, they wrote people, they wrote the past and they captured moments,

poured flesh and bones of their own into their strong and delicate texts.

and we were there

near by

listening to their poets music.


it was with no doubt a delightful week.

thank you strong, beautiful, independent women.

Bè, hanno attraversato la porta, hanno guardato dentro, ci siamo abbracciati (qualcuna era qui per la seconda volta, e i loro abbracci erano ancora più graditi).

Hanno portato con sé il “tea time” e un grande vento di Gran Bretagna.

L’atmosfera inglese-scozzese era così forte e lieta che tra le parole e i corpi, prestando molta attenzione, si poteva riconoscere la regina in persona, James Bond travestito da Sean Connery, Winnie the Pooh e del fish and chips incartato nel giornale del giorno prima.

Le parole scorrevano intorno, venivano scritte e riscritte, sempre nero su bianco.

Ognuna delle scrittrici con la propria calligrafia, firmando la propria voce in frasi leggere e trasparenti.

Hanno scritto acqua, hanno scritto persone, hanno scritto il passato e catturato momenti, riversando la propria carne e le proprie ossa nei loro testi forti e delicati.

E noi eravamo lì, vicino, ascoltando la musica dei poeti.

E’ stata senza dubbio una settimana deliziosa.

Grazie a voi, forti, bellissime e indipendenti donne.
