Now that I reached the milestone – a Roman thing – of Sonnet 17 and the end of the “Procreation Sonnets”, I thought I would put a bookend on the subset.
Here is a version of Sonnet 1 in Rome’s dialect Romanaccio, and a very salty way to talk it is.

I spent a long time in Rome and got to know and enjoy Romanaccio. Mine isn’t perfect… ’cause if you aren’t Roman it never will be. But it ain’t bad. Generally, when I travel in Italy people squint at me and ask how long I spent in Rome.
