Naturalidade


Europeu, me dizem.
Eivam-me de literatura e doutrina
europeias
e europeu me chamam.

Nao sei se o que escrevo tem a raiz de algum
pensamento europeu.
E provavel... Nao. E certo,
mas africano sou.
Pulsa-me o coracao ao ritmo dolente
desta luz e deste quebranto.
Trago no sangue uma amplidao
de coordenadas geograficas e mar Indico.
Rosas nao me dizem nada,
caso-me mais a agrura das micaias
e ao silencio longo e roxo das tardes
com gritos de aves estranhas.

Chamais-me europeu? Pronto, calo-me.
Mas dentro de mim ha savanas de aridez
e planuras sem fim
com longos rios langues e sinuosos,
uma fita de fumo vertical,
um negro e uma viola estalando."

AUTO-RETRATO


De portugues tenho a nostalgia lirica
de coisas passadistas, de uma infancia
amortalhada entre loucos girassois e folguedos;
a ardencia arabe dos olhos, o pendor
para os extremos: da lagrima pronta
a incandescencia subita das palavras contundentes
do riso claro a angustia mais amarga.

De portugues, a costela macabra, a alma
enquistada de fado, resistente a todas
as ablacoes de ordem cultural e o saber
que o tinto, melhor que o branco,
ha-de atestar a taca na ortodoxia
de certas vitualhas de consistencia e paladar telurico.

De portugues, o olhinho malandro, concupiscente
e plurirracional, lesto na mirada ao seio
entrevisto, a nesga da perna, a fimbria da nadega;
a resposta certeira e lepida a dardejar nos labios,
o prazer saboroso e enternecido da ma-lingua.

De suico tenho, herdados de meu bisavo,
um relogio de bolso antigo e um vago, estranho nome.

Self Portrait


From the Portuguese, I have a lyrical nostalgia
for all things past, a childhood
shrouded between crazy sunflowers and fun;
the Arab ardour of my eyes, the penchant
for extremes: from ready tear
to sudden incandescence of a cutting word,
from heady laughter to most bitter anguish.

From the Portuguese, a gruesome streak, a soul
encrusted with fado, resistant to all
ablations of a cultural kind, the sure knowledge
that red wine’s better than white
attesting in the brimful cup, the orthodoxy
of certain victuals of telluric taste and texture.

From the Portuguese, the knowing look, concupiscent
and multiracial, quick to take in breasts
half-glimpsed, a flash of leg, a hint of bum;
the apt reply ready on the tongue,
the heart-warming pleasure of malicious gossip.
From the Swiss, I have great grandfather’s inheritance:
an antique pocket watch and a peculiar, vagrant name.
