i’d like you to go with me - Ana Paula Inácio

i’d like you to go with me
through life
like a sail
that would discover for me the world
but i’m on the uncertain side
where the wind pounds
and i can only teach you
the names of trees
whose fruit will be plucked in another season
where the trains scatter
anguished whistles

Ana Paula Inácio (born 1966) Portugal
