♥♥ Herberto Helder Presente ♥♥

A song of now will say that nights 
the heart. It will say that love approaches 
eternity, or that taste 
reveals unending rhythms, the secrets 
of the dark. 
For it is with names that someone knows 
where a body is 
through an idea, that a thought 
can take the place of a tongue. 
—It is with voices that silence wins. 

- Herberto Helder - 

November 23, 1930 – March 23, 2015
