Ode al carciofo (Pablo Neruda)

Ode al carciofo (Pablo Neruda)

Il carciofo dal tenero cuore si vestì da guerriero,

ispida edificò una piccola cupola,

si mantenne all’asciutto sotto le sue squame,

vicino al lui i vegetali impazziti si arricciarono,

divennero viticci,

infiorescenze commoventi rizomi;

sotterranea dormì la carota dai baffi rossi,

la vigna inaridì i suoi rami dai quali sale il vino,

la verza si mise a provar gonne,

l’origano a profumare il mondo,

e il dolce carciofo lì nell’orto vestito da guerriero,

brunito come bomba a mano,


e un bel giorno,

a ranghi serrati,

in grandi canestri di vimini,

marciò verso il mercato a realizzare il suo sogno:

la milizia.

Nei filari mai fu così marziale come al mercato,

gli uomini in mezzo ai legumi coi bianchi spolverini erano i generali dei carciofi,

file compatte,

voci di comando e la detonazione di una cassetta che cade,

ma allora arriva Maria col suo paniere,

sceglie un carciofo,

non lo teme,

lo esamina,

l’osserva contro luce come se fosse un uovo,

lo compra,

lo confonde nella sua borsa con un paio di scarpe,

con un cavolo e una bottiglia di aceto finché,

entrando in cucina,

lo tuffa nella pentola.

Così finisce in pace la carriera del vegetale armato che si chiama carciofo,

poi squama per squama spogliamo la delizia e mangiamo la pacifica pasta

del suo cuore verde.

One thing we have noticed is always that banks and also financial institutions are aware of the spending habits of consumers while also understand that most people max away their own credit cards around the getaways. They wisely take advantage of this specific fact and commence flooding your own inbox and snail-mail box by using hundreds of Zero APR credit card offers soon after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that if you are like 98% of American community, you’ll rush at the possiblity to consolidate credit debt and move balances for 0 interest rate credit cards.
