Fiamma of 43 Trees
Fiamma, Dreams of Becoming
September 1950
This is true
When I fell my leaves flamed red
Wind pressed my spine
Giving under the force
I sleep now with dreams of becoming
My arrival hidden in the boot of a mason
Italian I think.

Darkness and then bright
He walked barefoot in the grass that day
Oh yes, yes, I loved being red
