Like on the edge of an abyss

volonte-massimo_M9-002126“Opening a cardboard box that once held
conserves I stand still
like on the edge of an abyss:
there’s the time in it,
my childhood,
my mother’s and my father’s youth.
There’re pictures in that box.”

“Apriamo una scatola di cartone che una
volta conteneva le conserve e ci resto sopra
immobile come sull’orlo di un abisso: là c’è
il tempo, la mia infanzia, la giovinezza di
mia Madre e di mio Padre. Nella scatola ci
sono le fotografie.”
_Andrej Tarkovskij_
