Sourced[edit]

  • Uma obscura e inquieta castidade:
    pôs uma flor para mim no jardim mais secreto
    num horizonte de graça e claridade
    intangível e perto.

    Promessa estática no luar
    da densidade em mim corpórea.
    não é a culpa, é a memoria
    da primeira manhã do pecado
    sem Eva e sem Adão.

    Só o fruto provado
    e a serpente enroscada
    na minha solidão.

    • Translation: A dark and troubled abstention:
      Put a flower for me in the most secret garden
      In a horizon of grace and clarity
      Which was untouchable and next.

      A static promise in the light of the moon
      Of the density which was corporal in me.
      It is not the fault, it is the memory
      Of the first morning of the sin
      Without Eve and Adam.

      Only the proven fruit
      And the rolled serpent
      In my loneliness.

    • Obscura Castidade (Dark Abstention)
