"2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY", STANLEY KUBRICK
I build an obelisk from top to bottom
I annul the gravity force with an equal and opposite creative energy.
I mould the shape without posthumous sense
nor cause and effect
meaning comes up with an undefined sketch prior from its dilution into the space
before becomes stone.
My work is the Stanley Kubrick's obelisk in "2001: a space odyssey"
jump each time closer to galaxy's centre
compunctious hope always far away.
I mould an obelisk in the space
night unfolds its hair
stars fill up its eyes
breeze half-opens its mouth
moon illuminates its reborn face.
(to read the original Portuguese version please click on the picture)
I went to the movies to deceive myself
the illusion is good and seems reality
but it's a mistake's bit
taken from an argument
to sell the ticket
to whom already has overtime to dream.
