Poems in Italian

Abro La Mañana
Abro a la mañana de un blanco lunes
la ventana, y la calle indiferente
roba entre su luz y sus rumores
mi presencia infrecuente entre las hojas.
Este moverme… en días totalmente
fuera del tiempo que parecía consagrado
a mí, sin regresos ni paradas,
espacio lleno todo de mi estado,
casi prolongación de la existencia
mía, de mi calor, del cuerpo mío...
y se ha truncado… Estoy en otro tiempo,
un tiempo que dispone sus mañanas
en esta calle que yo miro, ignoto,
en esta gente fruto de otra historia...
Pier Paolo Pasolini

I open the Morning
I open to the white Monday morning
the window,and the indifferent street
steals between its light and rumors
my rare presence among the leaves.
This move… in completely timeless days
that looked dedicate
to me without returns and stops,
filled space with all my state,
it is almost an extension of my existence,
my heat and my body…an
it has been truncated… I am in another time,
a time that provides its mornings
in these streets that I look, unknown,
in these people results of another history.
Pier Paolo Pasolini
