Burlantim

Burlantim é um personagem novo, em Alfama.
Aparece no Tejo Bar, lugar quase escondido e secreto, onde canta 'O seu Palhaço Sem Futuro'

Venha o público rir da minha graça
Sou o Segismundo Burlantim
que deseja deixar por onde passa
Lembranças de uma alegria alucinada

Soneto de Edison Nequete
Música "Fado Pimbinha" de Mané do Café

A história do Burlantim é longa.
Vem desde o Brasil. São os primeiros saltimbancos. De terra em terra, as suas magias e as suas histórias. São eles que dão origem ao circo primitivo.
Há uma aura que rodeia o Burlantim, é livre, é pobre, é artista, é contador de histórias, da história do mundo e dos homens…
Um funâmbulo…

A expressão é ainda um mistério para mim. De burla? De Volare? De Volantim?

Aqui os meus amigos brasileiros poderiam dar-me uma ajuda

Segimundo palhaço para quem
Se na vida não é sonho deve ser
No contrário não vale nem um vintém
Apressem-se. Não há tempo a perder


The Trail

Burlantin
Say you're in love
everybody must get stonned
say 'laugh of our lives'
sing, hat rough voice,
sing
in here everybody must get stonned…,

draw conclusions on the wall, dylan said
true
like window glass

with this writing, sweet you
a face a company old smoker spitter
hot terracota roof morning the sun
they are here they have names
i can be a shaddow, but i've a name also
your babes eyes look crazy, the dylan says

my train empty stations
airports
docks
night sweat
be it
hong kong
be it this me
the hour that ship comes in, he says again

the answer might be blowing in the eastern wind, of no salt, no time, this time bob it just didn't fit

these i remember
light buoy reds
these are my harmonica blues
45 minutes of catamaran
river of pearls brown of the night
and other night boats chinese light
the dark side of the river (road), this that loneliness of grains of nothings of time, no more time than 45 mikes, boarder, passing card, ok, taxi, home – home?.

Hang keya.go. Taxi go, go.

What other name, Burlantim…deste sonho que teima em não ter fim…..

here streets are blue, neon blue, them they smell garbanna, or worse, mistify
russian blonde, mellow thai, philippo joy, chinook fast and chinese opera on the tv, smell soap and min, fake fukian perfume, fake fake, old so fake than reality…than this
words are tasteless
words
words are in newspapers

never write that
just think you write

the Trail


Burlantim ou Fadista Vadio?

Qualquer dia nem uma coisa nem outra.
E tudo se torna na repetição do Mesmo.
Aí a alma morre.
Afinal já não há Burlantins…
Nem Fadistas Vadios.
De mentira em mentira até à inexistência da verdade.
Também é assim em Alfama….
E todo este portugal se dobra sobre si em cólicas de desamor.

So long, Burlantim.
