Concrete poetry with a section of a Brazilian song, 'Cálice' by Chico Buarque. The song was released during the dictatorship of the country in the 1960's and explores the idea of living in a moment of political distress.


How difficult it is to wake up silent

If in the dead of the night I'm screwed

I want to cast an inhuman scream

Which is a way to be heard

All this silence baffles me

Baffled, I remain attentive

In the bleachers to at any moment

See emerge the monster of the lagoon
