mi scusi, signorina


there are not very many words yet

that we know how to say,

but already it feels like a secret language.

ti amo.

no! voglio baciarti…

no! no! voglio mangiarti!

even though more than 100 million people

speak Italian worldwide,

according to the internet,

tu sei bellisima.

grazie, signorina [an unmarried woman], grazie mille

it feels like

you and me

are the only ones.

tu sai qualcosa?

si, ti capisco,

enough so that

in a crowded room,

si, io ti capisco,

in an always crowded world,

we are alone again.
