Yet one more of a series of short poems originally written in Portuguese, soon to be published in the "IV Antologia de Escritas" - a yearly compilation of poems in the Portuguese language by authors from Portugal, Brazil, Africa and East Timor.

(art by Wieslaw Walkuski)



The eyes run at the speed of thirst.
Yes, the eyes. Close to the margins of a mouth.
Yes, a mouth. Quiet of surging torrents.
Of flowing beyond the course between margins.
Yes, a mouth. Close to words. That run
at the speed of not being said when the eyes
yes, the eyes, run by them. And fail to drink.
