Preponderance

Re-reference

Sat Ercole by the fire,
Watching the mantel.
The day was warm, but
Fire he would have.
"Nonna wants bread tomorrow,"
Said Ercole.

Whether Fiorenza was there,
He would say such things.
But tomorrow the bread,
And Nonna Carmela
Shall have her share.

Which meant Ercole
Should better have enough!

Re: Preponderance

Thank you! This is a fascinating poem. I think it does a good job of capturing Ercole's non-linear worldview. I'll link this from the Serial Poetry page.
