The Goal ~ Ferreira Gullar

The Goal

The ball falls
from space
fast

he controls it
on his chest
and stops it
on air
then

with his knee
arrange it at halfway up
where
illuminated
the ball
stalls

and waits for the kick that
like a flash

fires it
towards
our
heart.

O Gol

A esfera desce
do espaço
     veloz

ele a apara
no peito
e a pára
no ar
     depois

com o joelho
a dispõe a meia altura
onde
iluminada
a esfera
     espera

o chute que
     num relâmpago

a dispara
     na direção
     do nosso
     coração.
