SOMETIMES

SOMETIMES
sometimes
after lunch
sitting on the couch
crossed legs
looking at the toe of the shoe
I see an ankle still with some vigor
and a well-shod foot
I think---

armandinho armandinho (*)
have you ever imagined your ankle made dust?
have you ever imagined your writing brain disappeared into nothingness?
you think upon existence every day what for after all?---

my destiny does not exist
is simply null
the Universe is useless
thus I fall asleep
my inert body on the couch anticipates my migrating life
into the stillborn Universe
which
I repeat
is useless
for me
or anyone

///

ÀS VEZES

às vezes
depois do almoço
sentado no sofá
de perna traçada
olho para a biqueira do sapato
vejo um tornozelo ainda com algum vigor
e um pé bem calçado
penso---

armandinho armandinho
já imaginaste o teu tornozelo feito em pó?
já imaginaste o teu cérebro de escritor desaparecido no nada?
pensas na existência todos os dias afinal para quê?---

o meu destino não existe
é simplesmente nulo
o Universo não serve para nada
entretanto adormeço
meu corpo inerte no sofá antecipa a migração de minha vida
para o Universo nado-morto
que
repito
não serve para nada
nem a mim
nem a ninguém
