Large puddles

Large puddlesThe rain has left large puddles on the road
There will reflect the houses, the sky, the people passing by, your eyes, my thoughts
Everything must go
All you can eat
Cash, heavy money
The public debt
An underestimated enemy
Our children, alone
Humanitarian emergency
A man is dead, he was a priest
God save the Queen
We stop at the second floor, not at the last
We drank too much, once again
This paradise is too far away
I have dreams that I do not remember
I’m reading a book I don’t like
I think of you, my ghost
The rain has left large puddles on the road
The water is dark, choppy, the wind took away all the reflections.

La pioggia ha lasciato sulla strada ampie pozzanghere
Ci si riflettono le case, il cielo, la gente che passa, i tuoi occhi, i miei pensieri
Tutto in saldo
All you can eat
Soldi in contanti, soldi sporchi
Il debito pubblico
Un nemico sottovalutato
I nostri figli, soli
Emergenza umanitaria
E’ morto un uomo, era un prete
Dio salvi la regina
Ci fermiamo al secondo piano, non all’ultimo
Abbiamo bevuto troppo, ancora una volta
Questo paradiso è troppo lontano
Faccio sogni che non ricordo
Leggo un libro che non mi piace
Penso a te, mio fantasma
La pioggia ha lasciato sulla strada ampie pozzanghere
L’acqua è scura, increspata, il vento ha portato via tutti i riflessi.
_Hugh S. Graves_
