Hedley, Leslie Woolf: Assolo per un pianeta morto (Solo for a dead planet in Italian)

Portre of Hedley, Leslie Woolf
Portre of Cikos Ibolja

Back to the translator

Solo for a dead planet (English)

Through the wild fingers of cities
where vultures have more that cannon to eats
a parade of monsters
run amok through empty sewers
walls of buildings vibrate
with poison eating below the belt
chewing away at elevator shafts
and diplomats open eyeballs
the whiskey bottles crash endlessly
as rats ramble through nightclubs
tearing away
late G string

everything's naked now.

Assolo per un pianeta morto (Italian)

Attraverso le dita selvatici delle città
dove gli avvoltoi mangiano più dei cannoni
dove una sfilata dei mostri
corre impazzito attraverso le fogne vuote
vibrano le mura degli edifici  
col cibo avvelenato sotto la cinta
masticando vicino il vano dell’ascensore
i bulbi oculari dei diplomatici spalancati
il fragore infinito delle bottiglie di whisky   
mentre ratti vagano attraverso locali notturni
si strappa
la tardiva corda G

or’ è tutto nudo.
