With Every Sentence by Julia A. Masi

Julia A Masi | Jul 6th, 2022 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

The rotting process
began slowly
when he picked
up the damned book
Reading and re-reading
the same sentence
repeatedly
meditating on each
word
each phrase
at first, he didn’t understand
but I could see the rotten
process
his faith disintegrating
millimeters with every
sentence
until he was no longer
a righteous man.

Italian

Il processo di decomposizione
iniziato lentamente
quando ha scelto
su quel dannato libro
Lettura e rilettura
la stessa frase
ripetutamente
meditando su ogni
parola
ogni frase
all’inizio, non capiva
ma potevo vedere il marcio
processare
sua fede disintegrando
millimetri con ogni
sentenza
fino a quando non era più
un uomo giusto.
