*amalgam #7: fernando ancil (brazil) and marina tsvetaeva (1933, russia)**
Oh, table, on which I write!
I thank you with all my heart:
You’ve given a trunk to me –
With goal a table to be –
But keep being the living trunk! –
With – over my head – your leaf, young,
With fresh bark and hot pitch’s tears,
With roots – till the bottom of Earth!
