TREVI FOUNTAIN

Folder: 
MARCO! POLO!

 

Everybody wants

to check out Trevi Fountain

when they’re in Roma.

It’s a tourist cliché 

but movie overkill guides us.

 

The image of Anita Ekberg

splashing in the fountain

from La Dolce Vita

is a modern archetype.

 

It is stunning

when you turn the corner

and see the statues in the fountain

and the flowing water.

 

It was a warm day

when I was there

and I had worked up a sweat.

I felt myself being seduced

by that image of Anita Ekberg dancing.

 

I thought better of it though.

I don’t suspect the poliziotti

would extend the same courtesy to me

that they extended to Ms. Ekberg.
