Archaeology of the Other
(for Horácio Costa)
Is it already time
to envision great finds
grapevines crosses or wheat?
Or simply cry I'll tear the careful
pages of a traveler by courtesy white
phone to affirm affairs of states to come?
Comes the unexpected message: exactly what
is the end of the line? the opposite of this or the
contrary of that which a purported Brazilian Oswald said:
"m a n i s a n a n i m a l w ho c o m m e m o r a t e s." : malgré lui ?
