A Million Seashells And Lullabys - Poem by André Lopes

Deliriums burn at the edge of my skin,
i want everything at the same time.
give me a vast ancient town to wander.
give me symbols and visions from the future.
give me a trip to the heart of every single men and women.
give me a esplendid, radiant tropical forest
with tribes dressed as animals celebrating the birth of rain
and frenetically dancing to the pounding elephant drums.
give me a lover sleeping on the fresh divine grass.
give a million seashells and lullabys and they’re cotton confort.
yes i want it all,
i want it everything at the same time.
