o dia surge com a fúria do ouro
e ante ele
antenas conspiram a revolução
no seu entendimento de antenas
 
nascer e morrer já não é grande coisa –
sobra aguardar dos ligamentos o câncer
no tempo do tempo    que resta
 
esta música de pedra:
esse eu
que habita um corpo  
é menos que corpo
 
e recusa a ser feliz nesta cidade
e envelhece sem jamais ter sido jovem
 
ainda que as antenas sustentem elegâncias de inseto
contra a tarde
 
cardume metálico
no encardido das lajes
the day rises in golden fury
                        and before it
antennae plot revolutions
with their antennae’s mind
 
to live and to die is not much –
what’s left is to await cancer in the ligaments
in the time of the time             that’s left
 
this music of stone:
                                                            this i
that inhabits a body
                                                            is less than body
 
and refuses to be happy in this city
and grows old without having ever been young
 
even if the antennae sustain insect elegance
                                                            against the afternoon
 
                                                            metallic cluster
                                                            on filthy slabs
