12 Degrees & Skiving

what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice

The Kiss / Il Bacio

in his mouth he
collected the seashell
of my ear
the sudden ahhh-hush
of an ocean

nella sua bocca lui
ha raccolto la conchiglia
del mi’orecchio
l’ahhh-hush improviso

    Seashell of the ear. An image I’m fond of using too 🙂 Love the BD that goes with it.

      Thank you Jane…you’ll have to enlighten me as to what is “BD”, however…I’m sure it’s obvious, but I’m abbreviationally dyslexic!! 😉

        Oops. Culture interference. It’s Bande Dessinée ie comic book. I’d forgotten that might not be the expression everybody knows. It’s become a sort of French national product.

        Ah! We call them “Fumetti” (“little smokes”, for the thought bubbles that contain the dialogue).They’re super popular here as well.

        I remember picking my way through Topolino books when I was seven. At that age I don’t think kids have the same notion of foreigness as adults. Reading anything when you’re seven is a bit of an exploit!

Tell me wotcha reckon
