I will not be
interchangeable
to your shallow
self.

We live in a world where
one judges faces
with swipes and taps,
cancels memories
with a shallow touch,
and mutes presences
by archiving chats;

As if
Somehow to feel
relief.

(tell me –
where is the comfort
in that?)

confortante trovare riparo
nell’abbraccio di un’altra lingua,
quando si fa tremendamente fatica
a trovare risposte nella prima.

я не люблю, когда со мной играют,
и не позволю никому украсть мой луч.
я могу казаться несчастной пешкой,
но на самом деле с меня последний ход.
