Epistole 2012 -


you defeat me with words yet I know

that my life is lived out in a cave

where the birds of your soul never go


Stone pine series 2012 -


I buried you with stones, laid them over

each visible part, gently one by one;

the shape of you took years to submerge,

beneath an eternal spread of stone pine.


Memory wall - Rome series 2010 -  


that which remains


Speechless waits for talk of ancient cities,

ties to myths that join us still



testo critico di Francesca Gallo

memory wall series 2008 - 2010


the first time I saw him cry

it was when I asked him about the secret

in all the years since

I have never been able to remember

if he pronounced the word "no"
