The poetry of Adelia Prado
hit me like a gong,
as a fun.
Joys around a foot of wind,
roughness and side-by-side epiphanies,
performing with a devout fervor.
Add flaps in colors and textures
and, with needles,
give way to the lines of the poem
that's what I managed to do for, finally,
offer my ex-voto. "
