Request (Mariangela Jordan)

Request.

 

Please, do not forget

to bring me the Happiness.

 

I left it in the closet,

on the bottom shelf,

in the green file,

next to Love,

and all the Words we have said.

 

If you come, it’s easy to find

the monastery…

At the gate, a Hindu monk

is waiting for you.

 

Look him straight in the eyes,

don’t lose your cool,

but hide in your soul

all you have brought.

 

Leave home any memory of

who I used to be,

the letters I wrote you,

and all the days we walked hand in hand.

 

Please, do not forget

to bring me the Happiness.

 

You’ll find me in the monastery,

at the bottom of the hill,

in the green hut,

next to Love,

and all the Words

we never said.
