One Poem at a Time -13-


Without its title this poem is not extraordinary. With it, it’s only an entire lifetime’s record of imprisonment.

Little Girl
by Vivian Lamarque
translated from the Italian
by Cinzia Sartini Blum & Lara Trubowitz

from New European Poets

With the satin stitch
with the cross stitch
diligent she sewed her lips
she tied the knot.

Today’s “Poem a Day” poem happens also to be one (two) I love.

Tomorrow, something happy. Promise.
