I’ve never been able to write you. And after everything, I still can’t. You know when they say the best stuff happens when you’re in pain? I know there’s no pain because when I think of you, I still feel it. That block that renders you incapable of divulging your intimacies when you’re happy. When you’re in love.
I know there’s no pain because I can’t write you. I’m still trying to capture or to define you. But I can’t. I still guard it like it’s our secret. And it is ‘ours’ but not ours.
Why can’t I write you when you’ve left a hole? Why can’t I find the words or an explanation when you’re not here? I still can’t write you because I want to keep you. But people aren’t for keeps, I’ve learnt. People are presence, energy that contribute to the chemistry of being happy, being sad, being content or mad.
A tribute to Oscar Niemeyer by Eduardo Kobra.
The city of São Paulo is paying tribute to architect Oscar Niemeyer with a massive mural on Avenida Paulista painted by artist and muralist Eduardo Kobra with the help of four other artists over the course of the last ten days. The mural in honor of Niemeyer, who passed away last December at the age of 104, is 52 meters tall and 16 meters wide, occupying almost an entire facade of an 18-story high building at Praça Oswaldo Cruz.
