Believe In Me? No, Not In Anything.

Believe In Me? No, Not In Anything.
taken with a smartphone camera LG-P920
............................................................................

I'll always be the one who waited for a door to open in a wall without doors
And sang the song of the Infinite in a chicken coop
And heard the voice of God in a covered well.
Believe in me? No, not in anything.
Let Nature pour over my seetthing head
Its sun, its rain, and the wind that finds my hair,
And let the rest come if it will or must, or let it not come.
Cardiac slaves of the stars,
We conquered the whole world before getting out of bed,
But we woke up ant it's hazy,
We got up and it's alien,
We went outside and it's the entire earth
Plus the solar system and the Milky Way and the Indefinite.

by Álvaro de Campos (Fernando PESSOA), excerpt of "The Tobacco Shop" poem, 15.01.1928
