Poetry story

The time going backwards


The empty fork was brought to the lips

where he received the well-cut meat

He quickly placed it where it attacked the largest piece

The roast was put back into the pot to cook

The potatoes returned to the skin and were returned to the gardener who buried them underground

The roast was put back in the oven where it became raw

Then he was re-wrapped and returned to the shop where he was placed in the window to be resold

Gabriele Cavagna
