          the explicit camphor find it two notes a major 
      third interval
then the cuckoo i know the unfading 
green camphor when i hear it do you

      two 
      notes a major 
third 
interval and then the idea of an owl 
juxtaposed by the 
cuckoo the meantime the shuttering engine


	it all adds up to a subtle push
you had pushed the owl did 
          not I said but in the unfading 
       green 
      camphor      the kei engine
      two 
      notes 
   a 
          major 
third interval 
some naming the cuckoo the unfading green camphor 
two knots I 
said becomes three and so on but in the definite article of the owl 
he/I did note a major third interval

note it

      the 
cuckoo the owl 
      did note a 
  major third interval   and spring 
the cuckoo 
      the owl was not I 
said
         but in the unfading green camphor        bang bang
two notes a major third 
          interval 
      The cuckoo you who
the owl notes a definite 
          major third
         
        cuckoo

After Eugenio Montale’s “Sul Llobregat

“Sul Llobregat” by Eugenio Montale

Dal verde immarcescibile della canfora
due note, un intervallo di terza maggiore.
Il cucco, non la civetta, ti dissi; ma intanto, di scatto,
tu avevi spinto l’acceleratore.
