Those who will always remain strangers

Those who will always remain strangers
The bloom of the encounter by chance
of those who will always remain strangers…
The only indifferent gaze received accidentally
from a rushing foreign…
The look of interest in the child being taken by the hand
of a distracted mother…
The episodic words exchanged
with the episodic traveler
during an episodic journey…
So sad that all things are nothing but fragments…
Walk without end…

Il fiorire dell’incontro casuale
di coloro che resteranno sempre estranei…
L’unico sguardo indifferente ricevuto per caso
dalla straniera frettolosa…
Lo sguardo di interesse del bambino portato per mano
dalla mamma distratta…
Le parole episodiche scambiate
con il viaggiatore episodico
durante l’episodico viaggio…
Grande pena che tutte le cose non siano che frammenti…
Cammino senza fine…
_Fernando Pessoa (Poesie di Alvaro de Campos)_
