The Microscope: excerpt #8


The unmistakable sound of the nth uncorking
precedes the first icy sip.

A sip that goes down fast, intense,
directly from the mouth to the stomach.

A stomach that is closed, knotted, tense,
as if hit by a sudden punch.

Another sip.

The smoke of the first draw fogs the vision.
Only for seconds.

The eyes return to that white sheet.
The cursor blinks, stuck, on the waiting line. (…)

From The Microscope. A collection of snapshots immortalized with a pen, “Snapshot n. 7”.
