  • I brought the candles

    Of wax and bees’ wings

    They’re not pure, Mother

    But they can burn all night

    I brought the song

    It’s not clear, Mother

    But it has the right birds

    To follow the days as they fall

    Between my time and yours.

    - Ana Paula Tavares, 'I brought flowers . . .', translated from the Portuguese by Richard Zenith.
