Detesté al nacer.
Odié durante toda mi infancia.
A la edad de quince años,
I detested since birth.
I hated throughout my childhood.
At the age of 15,
El matrimonio es esa boca
MonogamyMarriage is this mouth
that stinks like affection
Tú me diste una boca.
Mi madre me dio este páncreas.
La Ciencia me dio insulina.
Dios no me dio nada salvo miedo
You gave me a mouth.
My mother gave me this pancreas.
Science gave me insulin.
God did not give me anything except fear
All poems were originally written in Spanish by Luna Miguel
All poems were translated by Jeremy Spencer
