We are CRIA, not created. Little breeds. Loneliness. To smear yourself. The act, the creation and its moment. Sprout. The heart saying, "hit me" with every punch of suffering. In scene birth and death. Each time. Even in childbirth there is a force that wants to give up.

A life that begins touches the sublime.

Why so many children? Because you are going to kill some.

Self made man. Breed from a poor community.

The boy is the man's father. I lick my breed, who teaches me as parents, and completes - this hate that consumes me.

Before the final form there was the orgy, the sex, the pulse, the desires that confuse themselves; How dancing is erotic! The invitation of the body that dances and creates is for you to glide where life springs. And when every little bit wants to insist?

Relationships create movements, and here the newborn dance is the daughter of our affections.

In Portuguese the word CRIA (Breed) has two literary meanings: young being, animal or human and also the verb to create - In Brazil it is commonly used to express in which slum someone was born: "I'm CRIA from Complexo".
