By Dwight Isebia

Is it a lack of respect for the gift of life,
not wanting them to cut in my body
and to refuse a surgeon to decide
to replace my organs and to attach a device
in order to prolong myself,  using money?

Am I wrong to wish my frame to continue,
without revisions and special measures
interfering with the course of nature,
knowing that such would not avoid departure
at a certain moment in future time,
notwithstanding adjustments I now decline?

Is it true that I refuse because I am too Lazy,
irresponsible, selfish, retarded or crazy?
(DPI 2011)

This is just a reflection. I am not ill personally!

En el candil cad├íveres  
de zancudos. Alguien solloza
en la habitaci├│n.

"candil" is an "oil lamp" and they are still used, for some reason, at wakes all over Latin America.  My first language is Spanish.
