Backgrounds - Poem by Paulo Ramos

Ao fundo uma flauta que não se ouve,
Um som que nada ecoa ou reverbera.
Ao fundo a voz que retorna em vómito,
Que treme cordas que, maré-alta,
Recobre os corpos e assusta gaivotas...
Ao fundo música de percussão e o som
Dos mares nas conchas e nos dedos dos pés!

Paulo Ramos – Trofa – Portugal

In the background a flute that does not play,
A sound that reverberates or echoes nothing.
In the background the voice returns in vomiting,
Trembling strings, high tide,
It covers the bodies and scares seagulls...
In the background music of percussion and sound
Of the seas in the shells and the toes!
