Poema do Começo – António Maria Lisboa

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 1:50 pm

Eu num camelo a atravessar o deserto
com um ombro franjado de túmulos numa mão muito aberta

Eu num barco a remos a atravessar a janela
da pirâmide com um copo esguio e azul coberto de escamas

Eu na praia e um vento de agulhas
com um Cavalo-Triângulo enterrado na areia

Eu na noite com um objecto estranho na algibeira
-trago-te Brilhante-Estrela-Sem-Destino coberta de musgo

António Maria Lisboa (n. 1 Ago 1928, m. 11 Nov 1953)
