Augosto dos Anjos

(20 April 1884 - 12 November 1914 / Pau d'Arco)

A dança da psiquê


A dança dos encéfalos acesos
Começa. A carne é fogo. A alma arde. A espaços
As cabeças, as mãos, os pés e os braços
Tombara, cedendo à ação de ignotos pesos!


É então que a vaga dos instintos presos
— Mãe de esterilidades e cansaços —
Atira os pensamentos mais devassos
Contra os ossos cranianos indefesos.


Subitamente a cerebral coréa
Pára. O cosmos sintético da Idéa
Surge. Emoções extraordinárias sinto...


Arranco do meu crânio as nebulosas.
E acho um feixe de forças prodigiosas
Sustentando dois monstros: a alma e o instinto!
