Dream no. XLV

Dream no. XLVGoing out, again, on the road, in the rain
Nobody will notice my tears
Red wine, his own season, a single color
The words of the speeches all over me are wrong notes in the song in the background
Dance steps around my heart
The tree is wearing her light dress
I was walking in the rain
chasing a thought that I have not reached
It’s easier to go to Venice, flying to Moscow
to take a train to Ula Bator to Beijing and then to Tokyo
The darkness comes inexorably, it hides the day
The rain prevents me from breathing
That’s right, I can never reach anywhere
Maybe because I have no place where to go
But I keep on walking down on the road, in the rain.

Esco, ancora strada, sotto la pioggia
Nessuno noterà le lacrime
Vino rosso, è la sua stagione, unico colore
Le parole dei discorsi attorno rimangono come note stonate nella canzone di sottofondo
Passi di danza attorno al mio cuore
L’albero indossa il suo vestito leggero
Sotto la pioggia ho camminato
Inseguivo un pensiero che non ho raggiunto
Più facile andare a Venezia, volare a Mosca
Prendere un treno per Ula Bator, per Pechino e poi Tokio
Il buio arriva inesorabile, nasconde il giorno
La pioggia mi impedisce il respiro
Proprio così, non riesco mai a raggiungere nessun posto
Forse soltanto perchè non ho dove andare
Ma continuo a camminare, la strada sotto la pioggia.
_Hugh S. Graves_
