ESSERE ITALIANE

Allora, mi hai sposata perch sono italiana
ma non sai che la mia Italia sulla mappa non c?
che io non sono italiana
sono nata in Belgio e sono cittadina americana.
Che anche tu sei italiano?
Basta sposare unitaliana
e vivere sei mesi in Italia,
me lhan detto al consolato.
Se non sono italiana
perch mi hai sposata?
Forse perch cucino allitaliana.
Ma se il baccal ti risulta estraneo
e il mio budino non to your liking?
perch sono passionale?
Le donne italiane
(o sono le francesi nel film l marito della parrucchiera
o le spagnole in French twist?)
a letto han fama di fare scintille.
Eppure mi hai dato della suora
e laltro giorno mi hai detto
che piuttosto che chiedermelo
ti fai prete.
Forse per il mio accento,
sono molto carina
quando dico porca vacca
invece di golly!
Potrebbe anche essere questione di prestigio.
Italiano in
specialmente da quando
Under the Tuscan Sun
ha venduto un milione di copie.
Ammiri la mia forza e tenacit,
il mio attaccamento alla famiglia,
il mio intelletto brillante
tutto made in Italy.
Parole tue,
le hai scritte su un foglio
al laboratorio per comunicazione di coppia
interculturale
dove abbiamo imparato
che le differenze arricchiscono.
Anche tua mamma dice
che ho arricchito la tua vita ....
Ho portato un po daglio,
basilico, parmigiano - quello vero -
un po pi di sale nella tua vita.
Ma il sale fa alzare la pressione,
il parmigiano ha il 60 percento di grassi
(anche il Velveeta se per quello)
Ma il Velveeta non ha sapore, ergo,
a parit di grassi, fa meno male.
Fare lamore di mercoled non nel mio stile
Non scandaloso per me amarti dopo una lite.
Per essere amata da te
il mio record deve essere perfetto:
cucinare senza sporcare
amare senza sbavare
intelligente senza esagerare
tenace ma pronta a mollare.
Mi ami? ti chiedo
un po s un po no mi rispondi.
Ogni volta mi spezzi il cuore.
Non ce la far mai,
eppure sono italiana
- ma non troppo -
proprio come vuoi tu.
Non abbastanza, prova di nuovo,
Nelly,
anzi Ornella.

"Brava.I feel better writing in English, I married an Italian from Toscana,now devorsed,God help us both,I liked your piece very much.Diana" -- Diana Venditti.
"Dear Nelly, I was born in Sepino, your mothers home town and my mothers name is also Rosinella, I have lived in Canada since I was ten. When I caught your article of Santa Cristina, I relived every moment of your experience as if it were mine, running through the narrow cobblestone streets smelling the flowers, listening to the music and singing along the way, sharing "the roots from heaven"... as Albano puts it. "Essere Italiane" means being passionate, coming from the heart through our cooking and beyond if only to leave a legacy, to keep the fires burning. " -- Anna Maria Cusano-Bon, North Vancouver, BC, Canada.
