Nunca serei nada.
Não posso querer ser nada.
À parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.

I will never be anything.
I cannot want to be anything.
Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world."

A JOURNEY BACK TO ENDEARMENT

A JOURNEY BACK TO ENDEARMENT



FLYING A SECRET



I got here to hide. From equations and patterns. From repetition, after all.
Closed the door and got me a special place where I thought I could
somehow sit close to the stars. But I soon found out that the sky was
still opaque, no matter what the steps. And so I left. Again.

I thought, then, I could build me a different ceiling, a new-coloured scrap
of highness. And then make it work. Where I could dream, more than I sleep.
I have long decided that sleeping is overrated - that I know for sure. So I
take that time instead to travel the night alone and in the meantime I allow
myself to fly, unlike stated before... Yes, I like playing with paradox, to
expose the inside of words and the revelation of writing down the voice of a
silence. My adventurous, ever-walking silence.

So I came back. Here, within this quiet world, I intend to gather all my
things usually kept hidden or inactive. They are here to speak.

And since the future is a stand-by secret, I want to live by a precocious
clock, at every running instant of every entering second.

And I will not slow down until my "future exists now" - kind of reverse
quoting Jacob Bronowski.

"POETAS ANDALUCES" - AGUAVIVA



Um vinil que guardo com amor: "Cada vez más cerca", 1970.
"AGUAVIVA", mesmo, da mais agrestemente viva e pura das fontes. "Poetas Andaluces" é aquele tema grandioso, que caminha comigo, eternamente cá e lá, na memória, no coração, na garganta. E tal como o Fado Português, de Régio com Amália, ainda espero o dia em que o ouvirei de olhos enxutos. Ou não - talvez fosse um mau prenúncio de mim...


 
(a capa original)
 
 


"POETAS ANDALUCES


¿Qué cantan los poetas andaluces de ahora?
¿qué miran los poetas andaluces de ahora?
¿qué sienten los poetas andaluces de ahora?


Cantan con voz de hombre
pero, ¿dónde los hombres?
Con ojos de hombre miran
pero, ¿dónde los hombres?
Con pecho de hombre sienten
pero, ¿dónde los hombres?


Cantan, y cuando cantan parece que están solos
Miran, y cuando miran parece que están solos
Sienten, y cuando sienten parece que están solos


¿Qué cantan los poetas, poetas andaluces de ahora?
¿Qué miran los poetas, poetas andaluces de ahora?
¿Qué sienten los poetas, poetas andaluces de ahora?


Y cuando cantan, parece que están solos
Y cuando miran, parece que están solos
Y cuando sienten, parece que están solos


Y cuando cantan, parece que están solos
Y cuando miran, parece que están solos
Y cuando sienten, parece que están solos


Pero, ¿dónde los hombres?


¿Es que ya Andalucía se ha quedado sin nadie?
¿Es que acaso en los montes andaluces no hay nadie?
¿que en los campos y mares andaluces no hay nadie?


¿No habrá ya quien responda a la voz del poeta,
quien mire al corazón sin muro del poeta?
Tantas cosas han muerto, que no hay más que el poeta


Cantad alto, oireis que oyen otros oidos
Mirad alto, vereis que miran otros ojos
Latid alto, sabreis que palpita otra sangre


No es más hondo el poeta en su oscuro subsuelo encerrado
Su canto asciende a más profundo, cuando abierto en el aire
ya es de todos los hombres


Y ya tu canto es de todos los hombres
Y ya tu canto es de todos los hombres


Y ya tu canto es de todos los hombres
Y ya tu canto es de todos los hombres "


RAFAEL ALBERTI, 1950
