THE LEAVES  

I defoliate the petals
the leaves of the poem
until I reach perdition

desiring the unutterable

between the place where one helps
the hand that writes and the space
where the writing finds shelter

AS FOLHAS

Desfolho as pétalas
as folhas do poema
até chegar à perdição

desejando o indizível

entre o sítio onde se apoia
a mão que escreve e o espaço
o nó onde a escrita se abriga
