Januário Esteves, Poetry 2021 Shortlist

song of joy


I sing the grief with joy

Nothing about me anymore

The charm of melancholy

The sweetness that plagues


To the soul the frantic chance

Land which columbina

The laughter that gives rise

Fetching lamp


Or another vegetable idea

Those that exude us

And obsolete practice

Pusillanimous gives us anger


And for what happens

Lovelessly

The being, a being, who dies

To love hopelessly.
