    • ADIEU, ADIOS & FAREWELL
      by Albert Russo

      on the twentieth of April last
      Shelly left Belgium for good
      she who had cared for both
      you, Papatchi and Mamica
      our adored parents
      for the last thirty three years

      and now you rest in peace,
      united, in a Flemish village

      on the twentieth of April last
      I slept till late in the morning
      in a cosy hotel room at
      the heart of Deauville, where
      the American Film Festival
      holds its annual Award Ceremony

      it was the first time, Mamica
      since youʼve left us
      that I saw you clearly
      walking in front of me
      from the window to the door
      you were in your late thirties
      lovely as ever, wearing
      a blouse and a mid-length skirt
      youʼve always had that
      sober elegance any model
      would have pined for
      you were half my age, oh God
      indeed I was in love with you
      would that be called
      emotional incest?
      what an ugly word for
      such a pure sentiment
      yet Iʼve heard that before
      said of the two of us
      by malignant people

      during my first divorce

      for a few seconds I just saw your profile
      but then, before leaving the room
      you turned towards me with those
      luminous green-grey eyes of yours
      and stretched your arms
      in a pleading gesture
      then you suddenly disappeared
      that is when I woke up, suffocating

      I spent the whole day
      tottering in the quaint streets of Deauville
      like a drunkard, unable to focus
      on either the strollers or my surroundings

      Then I thought I realized what
      you were trying to tell me, Mamica
      «Now all three of our children
      have left this country, and us with it
      ADIEU, ADIOS, FAREWELL»

      you have eternity for you
      my beloved parents
      enjoy that infinite time
      together and with all our
      dear ones, family and friends
      We shall never leave you, queridos
      wherever we will be moving to
      Bless your souls and us too

      ADIEU, ADIOS, FAREWELL
