Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to...


Giuseppe Cornacchia

Giuseppe Cornacchia is an Italian scientist, aged 35, living and studying at postgraduate level in UK since 2006. Over the last decade, he has earned publication of poems and good reviews in Italy; he founded in 2002 (and still co-manages) a small well-known literary portal at which you can visit by clicking here. 


This chapbook is a partial translation into English language of his latest collection, published in Italy by Fara Editore in 2006.



     Ci sarà qualcuno a dire che scrivo

     ed altri d’accordo annuire.

     E chiedono soldi per leggermi;

     e fanno dei versi un crogiolo

     cento storpi che sciacano a braccio

     a cercare conforto.



     There will be someone saying that I write

     and other people agree, nodding.

     And they will ask for money to read

     and turn my verses into a crucible,

     a hundred cripples blathering away

     looking for reassurance.
