[no title] ~ Maria do Rosário Pedreira

Carriage, 60 x 70, oil on canvas, 2010 ~ Eric Zener

Between us sleep pains that you do not
know. You fell asleep first –
and my past is an antique clock
Teasing the silence. If you had

told me your name when you arrived,
you could be part of these memories already.

[in Nenhum Nome Depois, 2004]

Dormem entre nós dores que não
conheces. Adormeceste primeiro –
e o meu passado é um relógio antigo
que arrelia o silêncio. Se me tivesses

dito o teu nome quando chegaste,
podias fazer já parte destas memórias.
[in Nenhum Nome Depois, 2004]
