Fotografia de menino amarelo-pobre

pobre
o menino de mãos levantadas                                                                               
na fotografia de 1900                                                                                              

minha paixão era um trem                                                                                     
que passava na Rua da Madrugada

agora
que sou homem                                                                                         
tenho que trabalhar                                                                                                                                                     
pagar contas e fu-                                                                                                         
mar charuto cubano

o menino era maquinista                                                                             
amarelo-pobre
amarelo-pobre amarelo-pobre
amarelo-pobre                                                                                                         

nossa mãe rezava
novena de natal
