That pastry and coffee house in Como - Giampiero Neri

That pastry and coffee house in Como
the teenager actress, hope of our theatre,
had often patronized,
was hard to recognise
among the new shops.
She used to go there with a girlfriend,
both of them fond of marrons glacés,
but the habit had broken up.

Giampiero Neri (born 1927) Italy
Translated by Ron Banerjee
