The massacre time

Hi there, I'm back!

- The massacre time -

How much blood
gathered from Italy's sewers?
How much longer
are we going to harvest it?

It's said,
that at every river's mouth
where it's lost in the great sea,
there, cherries are redder than ever,
lapped by that water
that carries within
the blood of our silence.

Thanks for reading and for your time!

Translation by Alessandro Zuliani.
