Sensory Communication – part II

My project of writing as an existential project is a failure;
I dip in the unrest, in a nonsense of everything and everyone;
pretensions clash in words.

I walk in silence.

My body moves diluted in time;
a subtle touch of my fingertips in a finite space;
evidences of lives which resist and coexist with the absurdity of the world.

I smile with my eyes.

O meu projeto de escrever enquanto projeto existencial é um fracasso;
mergulho no desassossego, na ausência de sentido de tudo e de todos;
pretensões se esbarram em palavras.

Caminho em silêncio.

O corpo se move diluído no tempo;
um toque sutil da ponta dos dedos no espaço finito;
registros de vidas que resistem e coexistem com o absurdo do mundo.

Sorrio com os olhos.
