Lips – le labbra – buze

Trilingual text

Image

You can’t get blisters on your heart from longing
just as you get them on your feet from shoes
From love, even less, you won’t be pulling like an ox a plow
Why all this fierce infatuation that
the effort is maximum and that every lyrical love-drenched hiccup is due a round of applause
Want me, I want you, legato, adagio, allegro
the planet doesn’t get blisters from courting the Sun
What are you waiting for, in vain economizing lips, kiss me
before I become a mere faded photograph…

Image

Non farai vesciche sul tuo cuore dal desiderio
così come si fa alle suole dalle scarpe
Dall’amore, anche meno, non sarai al collo come un bue tirando in aratro
Perché tutta questa feroce infatuazione che
lo sforzo è massimo, e che per ogni lirica d’amore intrisa singhiozzo serve un applauso
Mi vuoi, ti voglio, legato, adagio, allegro
Il pianeta non fa le vesciche dal fatto che corteggia il Sole
Cosa stai aspettando, fai economia alle labbra invano, baciami
prima di diventare una mera fotografia sbiadita …

Image

la inimă nu vei face bătături de la dor
precum faci la călcâie de la pantofi
de la dragoste nici atât, nu vei fi acolo ca la gâtul boului de la jug
ce atâta spăimoasă infatuare cum că
efortul e maxim şi că ar trebui aplauze ficărui sughiţ liric
teiubescian
doreşte-mă, dorescu-te, legato, adagio, allegro
planeta nu face bătături curtând în jurul soarelui
ce stai, economiseşti buze zadarului, sărută-mă
până să devin doar o fotografie maronie
