“Ahora tu cuerpo es sacudido por...” / Roberto Bolaño

“Now your body is shaken by...”

Now your body is shaken by
nightmares. You are no longer
the same person: who loved,
who took risks.
You are no longer the same person, even if
tomorrow everything might vanish
like a bad dream and you begin
again. Tomorrow
you might begin again.
And the sweat, the cold,
the erratic detectives,
will be like a dream.
Don’t give up.
Now you’re shaking, but tomorrow
everything might begin again.

{ Roberto Bolaño, La Universidad Desconocida, Editorial Anagrama, 2007 }
