We, who in the 80 were kids

painting by Laura Tedeschi

We, who were playing hide and seek at all times.
We, who the roller skates had four wheels and stretched when the foot was growing.
We, who those of us who left the longest trail in the braking with the bike was the coolest.
We, who went on the bike in two.
We, who thought to had secrets.
We, who really had secrets.
We, who were doing a competition to see who chewing more chewing gum at the same time.
We, who adopted stray cats and dogs that we were never attacked any fatal disease although later, after have caressed them, we put our fingers in our mouth.
We, who did not know to read the fever thermometer.
We, who break off fever thermometers, and balls of mercury were wandering through the house.
We, who the Rubik's cube, we never finished, at least without cheating...
We, who exchanged with each other stickers before the lesson (and during and after)...
We, who with a willow branch did bow to feel like Orzowei.
We, who had the "secret place"with the "secret passage".
We, who in the meadows in the dark between the chirping of cicadas can still see the fireflies (and we did not know were the latest).
We, who sometimes quarreled.
We, who five minutes after it was all forgotten...
We, who "if you do this you are no longer my friend".
We, who the tape player ate the music cassette , and we had to rewind the tape with the pen.
We, who had the black and white TV.
We, who watched on TV "The little House on the Prairie " Even if this put sadness.
We, who looked at Christmas "Little Lord Fauntleroy", because it gave fixed on TV.
We, who laughed if a friend was laughing.
We, who our new shoes remained clean only an hour!
We, who are so excited for a kiss on the cheek.
We, who phoned in secret.
We, who did not have the mobil-phone to go talk in private on the terrace.
We, who write short messages on bits of paper to pass to the class partner.
We, who there was the Polaroid, and we waiting to saw the photo.
We, who when, pick up the photos from the photographer, were curious to see them.

laura, an ode to growing up, to how we lived and how our bodies stretched. how they shrunk in sometimes too, away from the leap of the frog, only to shake off surprise and pounce on them! how beautiful, laura. my favorite of yours. i would live inside this piece and be very happy. the smallest of things like the cassettes jammed and the pen - makes my heart know it is not a solid after all.


Olivia said...

Bella la Laura piccolina. Non esiste un autore di queste frasi, ma sono telespettatori di una trasmissione televisiva che mandano i loro "noi, che...". Ne hanno fatto un libro il cui ricavato è destinato ad opere benefiche.In questi momento il beneficiario è un ospedale pediatrico di Firenze. Elvi
