CORSINO FORTES

CORSINO FORTES

Cape Verde, 1933


IDENTITY STONE

I

ALL NIGHTS

The stones levitate in our dreams
The prophet’s balance! when
The earthquake of hope
Reaches
                    an expanse of 4.033 km²
And the ears light up
                    in the corridors of fear
                    in the corridors of life
The thunder of our temples
And islands jump
                    Out of the ruins
Like oysters
                    Into the pearls
And rocks jump
                    Passing
The archipelago of the senses + the
Feline choreography of the plains
Lean & magical! of bones & symbols
And so virgin! of being movement
Like! the light of the uterus
                    That undresses them
If here! in the air
                    at the feet of the archipelago
The islands stop
                    to see the rocks pass
From the desert of stones to the giving up of poverty
