Excerpt

,
Se despedaçam,
No rio, os barcos.

Fundas, soluçam
Caudaes de chôro...
Que ruinas, (ouçam)!
Se se debruçam,
Que sorvedouro!...

Trémulos astros...
Soidões lacustres...
--Lemes e mastros...
E os alabastros
Dos balaustres!

Urnas quebradas!
Blocos de gelo...
--Chorae arcadas,
Despedaçadas,
Do viôloncello.

AO LONGE OS BARCOS DE FLORES

Só, incessante, um som de flauta chora,
Viuva, gracil, na escuridão tranquilla,
--Perdida voz que de entre as maís se exila,
--Festões de som dissimulando a hora.

Na orgia, ao longe, que em clarões scintilla
E os labios, branca, do carmim desflora...
Só, incessante, um som de flauta chora,
Viuva, gracil, na escuridão tranquilla.

E a orchestra? E os beijos? Tudo a noite, fora,
Cauta, detem. Só modulada trila
A flauta

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
