temple of ruins
carlos marreiros

I want to profane the temple of your marble silence
trample your eternal ivy
where time wore you as stone

pull down your arches
for new colonnades
from column’s capital
polyphony created
the staircase already a theatre

pick the highest beam
crucify you at dawn
with the wind’s nail
with the thorn of nothing
