Literary Yard

Search for meaning

By: Denise Marques Leitão


No, no.
I’m not aiming for some pre-established aesthetic.
I want to be willing to be ridiculous, pathetic.

Tear away all these layers
that have never kept me safe.
Why lacquer my words then?

Instead, I’ll speak
From deep down, that place
where fears and dreams mix.

They have no clue what is poetic.

Let go.
No echo.

No, no.
