on the chest pier It is a book of poetry written during my ˜black’ journey between Minas-Recife-São Paulo. Organized into 4 chapters (island, rudder, boat, archipelago), the poems move from a space of investigation and self-fiction (island), to the encounter with other islands as a public vocation (archipelago). 

〰️〰️ blackness, diaspora, sensitive resource, opacity, pitch, non-human wisdom, ruin, civilization, detachment, territory, border, are devices 'on the pier of the chest'.
