Diabetic Coma*

You gave me a mouth.

My mother gave me this pancreas.

Science gave me insulin.

God did not give me anything except fear in a handful of sugar.

Coma Diabético

Tú me diste una boca.

Mi madre me dio este páncreas.

La Ciencia me dio insulina.

Dios no me dio nada salvo miedo en un puñado de azúcar.
