Something has fundamentally changed in the world when one of the leaders of the European Union mentions the American president among the top threats to European unity, along with Russian aggression, radical Islamic terrorism, and civil wars in the Middle East. On Tuesday, European Council President Donald Tusk did just that. In a letter to the heads of EU member states, he expressed deep misgivings about the other Donald, who has questioned the value of NATO, applauded Britain’s exit from the European Union, suggested other countries may also leave the bloc to reclaim “their own identity,” and dismissed the EU as merely a “vehicle for Germany” to assert its power.

“Self-Seer II – Death and Man” by Egon Schiele

you mangler of moons
grim reaper of souls
stolen stars in your cowl
where your power
is held in the stench
of dead dreams
you leer ugly with
hourglass patience
through wrought-iron gates
nearly closed on the sun
sip the shadows
that wrinkle my air
with mistakes you devour
while waiting and counting
ill thoughts and poor
choices the bones
of your fingers collected
and pinned to my breast
like black badges
lascivious trophies
to hang from your scythe
when the gate latch drops
home with a chink
barely heard underneath
your foul breathy expulsion
of victory’s laughter

No meio das escadas, avisam: tenham paciência, Lula faz questão de apertar as mãos de todos. Pensei: como? Olho para a fila, não consigo imaginar como seria. Segui, com minha amiga e um aluno de 16 anos. Quando chegou a minha vez, só consegui dizer:- Trago todo meu amor e gratidão ao senhor e D. Marisa. Força,presidente!!! Eu estendo a mão e ganho um abraço apertado, como alguém que abraça um filho. Foi assim que senti. Mas, o momento mais emociante e lindo, foi o que aconteceu com o meu aluno.

Pedro Henrique, de 16 anos, envolto a uma bandeira vermelha, diz algumas palavras chorando e se abraçam. Pedro sai…
