IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE


The last poem arrived 
by morning 
and caused no reaction 
It entered by the door 
said "good morning" 
and sat comfortably 
on a soft chair 
announced "I am the last poem" 
and no one doubted 
no one answered 
no one stopped the work 
to read it 
or appreciate it 
It opened a book from Pessoa 
took a coffee with a lot of sugar 
smoked a cigar 
and kept waiting 
until it faded 
and become lost 
The last poem arrived 
not like death 
but the way some lives pass; 
with no one noticing.
