La felicidad viaja en furgoneta.

Happiness travels in a van.

Este es el blog de Shit Happening, proyecto de literatura libre, gratuita y sin intermediarios. Plasmando mis textos en lugares tan innobles como los lavabos públicos pretendo dignificar el soporte y comunicarme íntima y directamente con los lectores.
Wah Wah (Valencia), Viernes 22 de febrero de 2008
The life has already dealt with putting to flight
ideas like: “I am above my instincts”,
like: “I just need a van to be happy”,
like: “I am, by any reckoning, different”.
This life of mine has put to flight
my passion for clandestine vices,
keeping for me the white sadness of that beluga whale
who swims aimlessly in circles in an aquarium.
And it is hard to admit that it was me and nobody else
the one who sold his wings without bargaining,
the one who chose to trot like a colt,
too scared to fly.

DOWN WITH HAPPY MEDIUMS
Down with the happy mediums and half measures,
the half-hearted attempts that live us cold,
let’s bring this lukewarm people’s dictatorship down,
let’s agitate these tame waters,
let’s bring our warm lives up to the boiling-point,
let’s spill ourselves bubbling.
Let’s burn in haughtiness until we become extinguished really stealthily, like candles blown out by a birthday kid.
En días así más valdría estar muerto de una vez por todas.

MOURNINGS AND SORROWS
Time’s running out, and with it the possibilities that once we dreamt for ourselves. With every passing year I am nearer and nearer to the failure of my expectations. I will see all my goals thrown at my feet, defeated, abandoned, tired of waiting my coming, which will never take place. Now that I can start seeing my golden years on the rear-view mirror of a train bound to nowhere, I feel tortured by the almost certainty that I’ve run out of steam.
In days like this one it would be better to be dead for good.

I do not wish other people’s money.
It is bad enough with mine.
