Porque Hugo Williams é um dos poetas

aos quais regresso amiúde, partilho convosco a intensidade dos sentidos e da memória de "Siren Song": "I phone from time to time, to see if she’s/ Changed the music on her answerphone./ 'Tell me in two words,' goes the recording,/ 'what you were going to tell in a thousand.'// I peer into that thought, like peering out/ To sea at night, hearing the sound of waves/ Breaking on rocks, knowing she is there,/ Listening, waiting for me to speak.// Once in a while she’ll pick up the phone/ And her voice sings to me out of the past./ The hair on the back of my neck stands up/ As I catch her smell for a second."
