Look at Me

When you’re left alone
and the black waters are foaming at the door of your life
go outside, find a cantina
and after the seventh or eighth drink
the only thing you’ll feel is missing
will be a bowl of salted peanuts

Look at me
I am happy
between the first and third coffee
that is
for approximately one and a half hours
each day


Mírame

Cuando te quedas solo
y las aguas negras salpican la puerta de tú vida
vete en una cantina
y después de la séptima u octava copa
lo único que necesitarás
será una botana

Mírame a mí
estoy feliz
desde el primer café hasta el tercero
es decir
aproximadamente una hora y media
cada día
