Ottavia Silvestri

08 May Ottavia Silvestri

SILVER BELLS

 

one coin

 

in the gum machine,

 

candy coated,

 

muffled

 

chinaware’s clattering

 

from the bar.

 

 

 

SUNNIES

 

a dull thud

 

and I am

 

steeping into

 

the yolky heat

 

of the a.m.

 

 

 

PEARLY

 

among the shower’s vapours,

 

he is,

 

of the same mild nature of

 

forgotten blue pens in schools.

 

 

 

STICKY SAP

 

in the club

 

calmly limp on the sofa, light as dust

 

radiating feeble blue in hiccups

 

dripping,

 

silently

 

budding

 

 

 

WHITE SOCKS

 

If I am

 

tender

 

watery beauty

 

I see myself

 

in the mirror,

 

drizzled,

 

and I seep out

 

along with it,

 

nodding «mh-hm»

 

 


 

Ottavia Silvestri is a 22-year-old political science student from Milan, Italy. Reading and writing, especially in English, are their way to cope with the world: they have struggled with depression since a very early age (elementary school), and they experience it by feeling the world and living life as if it were in slow motion. With all that that entails, you can notice this in their works.
