A Dub in Black Rock / Ubaldimir Guerra #PoesiaRotaMundo


Sound check

one twos echo

in the black ark lab


Rusty bicycle spokes

Droop on a wooden rail


crossword puzzles

Empty squares

inside a residence of scratchy

oil tiles


Wire live

wire warn now

gruffy check one two

on two




sound drop



majestic riddim oh

conquering lion

fire for us


A prickle of symphonic silences

spinal tattoos

rhythmic needles

upon vinyl

is solstice


A blast of bass

Bass drum to

lee scratch

Scratch howl

Howl baboon howl


I must

Press record now







Spin it

scratch it



A silent night of

To th static strums of stalactile

guitars and

cicada tenors


recorded in cave

dubbed in the Wind


Record scratch

lee scratch

a lee crescente night of dub

to static to selassic eyes

press play

  1. Esse país foi difícil mesmo hahaha mas nada como um bom desafio pra gente encarar cheia de pique hehehe
    Gostei dessa tua escolha.


O Poesia na Alma pertence ao universo da literatura livre, como um bicho solto, sem dono e nem freios. Escandalosamente poéticos, a literatura é o ar que enche nossos pulmões, cumprindo mais que uma função social e de empoderamento; fazendo rebuliço celular e sexo com a linguagem.
