soy un hombre pero parezco un plato
miércoles, mayo 17, 2006

me despierto con una sacudida, a tiempo de ver mis brazos y piernas agitándose involuntariamente, como se agitan los miembros de los animales que sueñan.

soy la esencia de la reacción involuntaria, el pelele del intercambio químico.

en la televisión están echando el telediario, mientras el agua para el primer té del día hierve anuncian que el alma ha sido localizada. el primer té del día es el preludio de mi vejiga a punto de estallar cuando aún tenga que esperar 30 minutos para ir al baño.

soy la ausencia de esperanza en beneficio de la tranquila resignación.
soy un viejo atado a espejismos pasados.
aún busco la alacena que guarda una merienda de vida a dentelladas.

la alegría que a veces brillaba en tus ojos me reconfortaba, quizás, por lo ajena que me era y lo famliar que resultaba.

you can tell
from the scars on my arms
and the cracks in my hips
and the dents in my car
and the blisters on my lips
that i'm not the carefullest of girls

you can tell
from the glass on the floor
and the strings that are breaking
and i keep on breaking more
and it looks like i am shaking
but it's just the temperature
and then again
if it were any colder i could disengage
if i were any older i could act my age
but i dont think that youd believe me
it's just the way the operation made me

and you can tell
from the state of my room
that they let me out too soon
and the pills that i ate
came a couple years too late
and ive got some issues to work through
there i go again
pretending to be you
that i have a soul beneath the surface
trying to convince you
it was accidentally on purpose

i am not so serious
this passion is a plagiarism
i might join your century
but only on a rare occasion
i was taken out
before the labor pains set in and now
behold the world's worst accident
i am the girl anachronism

and you can tell
by the red in my eyes
and the bruises on my thighs
and the knots in my hair
and the bathtub full of flies
that i'm not right now at all
there i go again
pretending that i'll fall
don't call the doctors
cause they've seen it all before
they'll say just
she'll learn
the attention just encourages her

and you can tell
from the full-body cast
that you're sorry that you asked
though you did everything you could
(like any decent person would)
but i might be catching so don't touch
you'll start believeing you're immune to gravity and stuff
don't get me wet
because the bandages will all come off

and then you can tell
from the smoke at the stake
that the current state is critical
well it is the little things, for instance:
in the time it takes to break it she can make up ten excuses:
please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her...

i dont necessarily believe there is a cure for this
so i might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
i was too precarious removed as a caesarian
behold the worlds worst accident
