Illustration for O pássaro na cabeça
by Manuel Antonio Pina
“I’m the singing bird/inside your head/inside your throat/everywhereI want”
Bird singing inside head and throat.
Shadows symbolized the song expanded everywhere
“I’m the flying bird/ inside your heart/and everyone/also the ones you think they don’t"
Birds on a heart shape
Different colors and different eyes-shape are referred to different people
“I’m the bird of the imagination/which flies even at prison/and sings for everything and for nothing/even whit the mouth close”
As an imaginary situation (out of reality) figures are inverted
The bird is tired because the never ending song
“And this is the song without reason/which is not useful/only for be singed/when friends are leaving"
The prison’s bars are reverted simulating the leaving friends
The bird is singing louder and louder but they are leaving anyway
“And you stay alone again/in a biginning loneliness/with the little bird/inside your head"
Again alone, walking to the opposite side of his friends
The bird is still inside the egg waiting the moment to start singing again
