Sylvia And Ted

Poem By João Tomaz Parreira

When you were with me
I never could die

My eyes wandered
without you, my fear had noises
all the steps, the shadows
were solid things

when I wrote the death
it scratched out sheets of paper
but when you were with me
I was for lasting the entire life

Your legs
supported my falls.

one another

as arrows

the simple things

with lipstick, your red
lips
swallow a balcony
