La mort volontaire

La mort volontaire

Bologna

The sky over Bologna
is split
by one and a half towers

the taller
I have climbed
in a heatwave
thinking of
all the suicide attempts
in the world

the short one
leans as in contrast

injuries
depend upon
which side you jump.

Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir
