Eu quis escrever um poema sobre o suicídio
But realized in time that I no longer wanted to commit
My hand to it.
The pen is curious, mas o corpo quer viver.
No dia em que isso aconteceu, I was so sure
that my hand wouldn’t be able to write death
that I gave up.
Fechei os olhos and waited until dawn.
