CONFINEMENT TWO

CONFINEMENT TWO
Another confinement is coming
justified by the deads increasing
and the survivors
in concrete steel and glass prisons
peek out the window
and get used to seeing the empty street
with flickers of light in the shadows --- public lighting polychrome signs and one or another car that passes urgently ---
fixed for a moment on alienation

the insomnia
day or night
leaves an open door for depression

More and more
the Universe confined to our home
is confined to our mind
and after the ultimate body
what happens to us?!

///

CONFINAMENTO DOIS

Vem aí mais um confinamento
que o aumento de mortos justifica
e os sobreviventes
nas prisões de betão aço e vidro
espreitam pela janela
e habituam-se a ver a rua vazia
com cintilações de luz nas sombras --- iluminação pública letreiros policromados e um ou outro carro que passa com urgência ---
fixam-se por instantes no alheamento

a insónia
de dia ou à noite
deixa uma porta aberta para a depressão

Cada vez mais
o Universo confinado à nossa casa
confina-se na nossa mente
e depois do derradeiro corpo
que será de nós?!
