eu provavelmente detestaria siken se lesse crush há 4 ou 3 anos.

mas esses são os momentos da vida marcados por poesia. eu me lembro dos meus 12 anos, citando O Anjo, do Blake, de cabeça. e depois aos 18 com drummond, que provavelmente ainda é meu poeta preferido.

mas Siken. ah, o que eu posso dizer?


You see it as a room, a tabernacle, a dark hotel. You’re in the hallway again, and you open the door, and if you’re ready you’ll see it, but maybe one part of your mind decides that the other parts aren’t ready, and then you don’t remember where you’ve been, and you find yourself down the hall again, the lights gone dim as the left hand sings the right hand back to sleep. It’s a puzzle: each piece, each room, each time you put your hand to the knob, your mouth to the hand, your ear to the wound that whispers.

You’re in the hallway again. The radio is playing your favorite song. You’re in the hallway. Open the door again. Open the door.

siken sou eu depois que eu acordei daquelas 12h.
