Poetry story

The time going backwards


He went to the cemetery to pick up his wife

Her arrival completely rejuvenated him

The years of marriage were happy

In every summer, the woman became leaner and fresher

Everyone participated in their happiness

More than a hundred people attended the wedding ceremony

That was the last night they would spend together

She returned to live with her parents

The ex-husband often went to visit her

Then he forgot it and the woman disappeared from her life

He returned to school to forget all his knowledge

Gabriele Cavagna
