ONCE UPON A TIME...

ONCE UPON A TIME...
A land not so far away, a planet called Earth...
It wasn't a crash
It wasn't a disaster
It wasn't
(intense and long break)
And that's how the world dies
In the long and slow pandemic
To feel the invisible
To feel the visible
And all antinomies appear
We hear all sufferings of living humans
We hear all sufferings of dead humans
Like a gigantic egregore
All the night beauty grows darker
And it's in the darker night
And it's in the darker night
That human despair intensifies
More than the shine of the stars

///

ERA UMA VEZ...
Uma terra não tão distante assim, um planeta chamado Terra...
Não foi estrondo
Não foi hecatombe
Não foi
(pausa intensa e demorada)
E é assim que o mundo morre
Na longa e lenta pandemia
Tatear o invisível
Tatear o visível
E todas as antinomias aparecem
Ouvimos todos os sofrimentos dos humanos vivos
Ouvimos todos os sofrimentos dos humaos mortos
Como uma gigantesca egrégora
E a beleza da noite se faz mais escura
E é na noite mais escura
E é na noite mais escura
Que o desespero humano se intensifica
Mais que o brilho das estrelas
