At 13 years old I realised that my mother had never suffered a stomach ache…

She never had a stomach ache, she just wanted us to eat. Every time the food would come out, she would say ‘my stomach hurts’. What a lie! It was because there was not enough to go round. That is why I love my old lady so much.

Unemployment: Day 3

Her most frequent wisdom, prevention is better than care

My mother who imprisoned her children with love

That is the madness of love, the fear of death

"Where are you? When are you coming home?"

The behavior of the rich, always to keep

to hold, the chains are fashioned by brushes of the hair

be soft, to tend each wound is freedom

to prevent scars is to destroy the spirit

the body will recover —the body always recovers

the soul will grow agitated and in its confusion will hate

the consequence of love, the utter tyranny of it all

And when you leave your prison, dragging the chains behind you

the links like tears, falling with each departure

You destroy the imprisonment, unanswered phone calls

infrequent visits, forgetfulness, the antidote and poison

My mother was wrong: it had nothing to do with destiny. I wrote at random, I invented at random, I wanted to run away to some random place. Destinations-to my current state of mind, although I might have thought so back then unknowingly-are marks that we write on envelopes to hoodwink our fear at having no goals, to lessen our panic at not knowing where to seek shelter, to set the pressures of the possible in meticulous order.

In spite of myself, I groan when they maneuver into the positions they find most comfortable and satisfying. Only my eyes stay dry, as if all my tears were on the other side of my heart
