Wisława Szymborska | First Love / Il primo amore

They say
the first love's most important.

That's very romantic,
but not my experience.
Something was and wasn't there between us,
something went on and went away.

Alda Merini | Superb is the Night / Superba è la notte, 2000

The superbest thing it is the night
When the last fears fall
And the soul thrust itself into adventure.
He hushes in your womb
As if reabsorbed into the blood
