Reading Garcia Lorca in Italian

The labyrinth of dual languages

beckons darkly. I choose the rope of Italian,

letting the Spanish drift away. A few words

flutter bat-like from the edge of Seville

to the seven hills of Rome: love, crystal,

balconies, lanterns, light.

–excerpt from “Reading Garcia Lorca in Italian” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (virtual artists collective/purple flag, 2015). First published in After Hours.
