Poems

In itself

Notes

We had no solution, unfortunately, for the final line's 'cem', meaning 100, which also sounds like 'sem', without.

400 ASA is 'fast' film, used in low-light conditions; now called ISO.

Sarah Maguire, Workshop Facilitator

 

Notes on the literal translation:

dual meaning - revelação = develop or revelation

wordplay - cem=100 or sem = without
