II / Manón Kübler


i no longer am. i disappear in the confines of this room. alone, postponed, in the absurd belief of the child. foreseeing a threat that might keep me in mind. diminished. abrupt in the implements of doubt. as though tomorrow were to provide me a more intense health. but i’m an old woman in this room. i’m covered by the platonic response to suicides. i know nothing about myself even though i find myself again every day.

{ Manón Kübler, Olympia, Caracas: Monte Ávila Editores, 1992 }
