 *** Intermezzo by Mario Moroni   Recitare le ceneri Ciò che rimane del giorno, ciò che non si vede più o che è stato mal visto, quel giorno quando John Trevor era uscito in strada, scese le scale: “Cielo quasi blu dalle mille forme scure” aveva commentato, sguardo oltre le nuvole tanti passi come quei passi ed ora camminava già oltre tre isolati, mentre Martin Jones, impiegato, era uscito arrabbiato, colto da collera strana dopo che suo figlio, così, al telefono, gli aveva detto: “Me ne vado”, voce oltre le nuvole, cielo dalle mille forme scure, così aveva voltato l’angolo e senza pensare aveva chiesto: “Perché?” Come se non capisse e di fronte alla metro aveva visto Stephanie Lane, madre di due, che correva con lo sguardo oltre le nuvole, con mille voci nella testa, credeva che i suoi figli non avessero fatto in tempo a scuola e così voleva telefonare, così, solo per sapere.       Intermezzo 1 Con lo sguardo oltre le nuvole, con mille voci nella testa, sopra le mille e mille luci mille riflessi dai libri sacri, da città deserte e mille, mille villaggi, così, ora riunite le greggi meccaniche, così, proprio ora, riunite le greggi alate, ora con questo sguardo sono io a parlare, io molte volte io, a quale voce ho diritto io, pastore tra mille e mille luci, pastore...

Hate’s grapefruit. Be vertical. Strive to be vertical. No way to know the correct pronunciation of  “chthonic.” Rude fluids nurture the nightmare. The squidness of existence.     THE BODY IN THE OTHER ROOM   I couldn’t parse the grammar of her body nor decode the secret softness of her neck. I didn’t learn the tango of her shining nor even once track the trespass of her tongue. No one could rob her being of its bullion or untie the satin lashes of her charm. I lay with her on a tarnished beach at noon. Above us, blind seagulls interrogated aqueous clouds. I whispered a sinuous … I could go on but I’m tired, tired of describing what doesn’t exist, what never existed, except in words, words, whorish words of a certain alignment, a certain innocuous provocative vicinity.       About the...

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
