O jantar está pronto

Wandering in the chaos the battle has left
We climb up the mountain of human flesh
To a plateau of green grass, and green trees full of life
A young figure sits still by a pool
He’s been stamped “Human Bacon” by some butchery tool
He is you
Social Security took care of this lad
We watch in reverence, as Narcissus is turned to a flower

 

A flower?

esta flor cresceu à minha porta

Um grunho que parece um grunho normalmente é um grunho

Talking HeadsSeen and not seen

He would see faces in movies, on T.V., in magazines, and in books…
He thought that some of these faces might be right for him…

That he might, by force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal…

Maybe they imagined that their new face would better
Suit their personality…Or maybe they imagined that their
Personality would be forced to change to fit the new appearance…
This is why first impressions are often correct…
Although some people might have made mistakes…

He wonders if he too might have made a similar mistake.

É sexta feira vinte e quatro de maio e está calor

Quando cheguei a casa passava isto na radar. E por associação de ideias pensei naqueles ‘…’ que espetam o microfone na cara de quem está esfuziante de alegria ou tristeza, e perguntam em directo para a tv: o que está a sentir?

A atitude correcta é dar-lhe um pontapé nos tomates ou um murro nas mamas e responder: não consigo descrever, e tu?
