A child no one holds

escorrem-me as horas
por entre dedos cansados
da labuta interior.

mário, meu sá-carneiro*
encontramo-nos no além-tédio
endurecidos de tanta dor.

o desespero passa a galope…
a vida é longa,
dura e sem cor.

* Mário de Sá-Carneiro was a Portuguese poet and writer. This poem was inspired by his Além-Tédio poem.
