CALL IT LIVING
Translated by Do Vinh
Dying without prior
notice.† Who knows
ahead the hour of death.
The fateful flight is
the flight destined for a
meeting with the angels of death, †††††††
for the first and also the final time. †††††
Nowhere to go only†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
to make the necessary
appointment, but to
die suddenly because an
entire building collapses, that
is what is called destiny
is it not?† Isnít it destiny
what we call
for dying without prior
notice.† So that one has not
gone anywhere, not yet done ††††††††††††††
anything, but already know ††††††††††††††††† †
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††that death is sudden††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††† from the start, what
to call it precisely! ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
To die gradually slowly
is to live.
