THE BROWN BENCH


My mother said that I´m not supposed to talk to strangers
So I grasp why I can´t speak up
She forbids me to read comic books
Can´t remember what dreams looked like
But I dreamnt about going to Paris once in my life
And felt so pleased by the greatest wonders in nature
By all the love I thought I could have
By gardens everywhere
A brown bench by the beach
By watercolors that stir lives up
The red color that got me in awe
If only I knew how to use words properly
Maybe I could tell you something about myself
Sat on a brown bench by the beach
Before leaving to beautiful cities mentioned in newspapers
A garden very next to the sea
With plenty of fruits and trees
With thorn-free roses
I think
The day came when my wishes would come true
Who would have known how long it would have taken
I believe it must have been the best dream I dreamt so far

Quem é quem então? Eles, eu sei quem são.

Draft

Just a short tale
By John Ny

A long time ago, one of my grandmothers, tried to make sure that joining the Brazilian military service would be an unnecessary feat in my case, as she could probably use her influence over that matter. A quite clear sign of care and preoccupation over a possible and bad outcome, in my opinion. However, after a long period of reflection over what my choice would be, I really decided on enlisting against her wishes, which, unexpectedly, resulted in an unlikely outcome as she proved to be one of my greatest supporters at the time. Well, I really miss my grandmother and not for the fact that she was white in spite of the fact that I am black. Nevertheless, that is not the real point here. Because what had already been very clear to all participants in that process from the start, and including her main role in the equation, was the fact that dodging draft would never make of any citizen a useful one for society. We all shared the same opinion about the role …

Banquete

-Oi, já cheguei da escola.
O que tem para almoçar?
-Oi, querida. Como foi seu dia de aula?

Eu quero bife, mãe!

Tem salada de...
- E salmão?
Eu quero sobremesa também.

Eu preparei arroz, feijão....
- O mãe, só tem isso pra comer?

Não estou brava com minha mãe, pequeno grão de arroz!

Estou apenas com fome. John Ny/ João Neto
