Oil and blood

Oil And Blood
by William Butler Yeats

IN tombs of gold and lapis lazuli
Bodies of holy men and women exude
Miraculous oil, odour of violet.
But under heavy loads of trampled clay
Lie bodies of the vampires full of blood;
Their shrouds are bloody and their lips are wet.

gosto das reverberações intertextuais a soar a Zeca Afonso...

La main qui écrit est comme la main qu'affole la tempête. Il faut jeter la cargaison à la mer quand la barque coule."
Pascal Quignard, in Les Ombres errantes
