I have to bear some madness in me to be able to continue.
I understand without quite understanding and that this might happen to all men and each one in particular causes me a bit of rage and a bit of laughter.
am somewhat defeated, the wretch said, without vitality, without strength. I do
all my things but this way, without energy, without strength.
I dare to say this because lately I have known many people that with this question of depression want to stop working.

of which I never wanted to know what they were about
and there were exquisite meals that I never tasted
and meals which I ate almost everyday,
of which I never wanted to know how they were made
and there were times when I spent
the whole day cooking for others.

could chain me.
be happy if in something I could put some moderation.
I have already lived 60 years intensely, now it's time to live moderately.
Only with the women that desire me.
Only with wealthy friends.
Only with well-written poetry.
And so, moderately, I'll become old.
feel a little depressed but it is also true that I want to deceive everybody in
order to be left alone, living my experiences of creation. I have to stop saying
that I'm depressed. I have to separate myself from the people that don't love
the Cero Group project and to say courageously:
not depressed, I'm in love with my verses.

who can't, to the garbage can, shouted the wretch, that love will arrive soon.
I have no consolation: Looking at a woman is not looking at
the other one.
I can go on thinking that what we're doing is good (correct), what we're doing
will be correct.

over all of us.
Let knowledge destroy our morale.
If I wouldn't have read the great poets I'd feel like an extraterrestrial.
Though I must recognise that I don't any longer feel nor a genius, nor a jerk. I have started to grow up.

COW WAS ALWAYS
A LITTLE CRAZY
BETWEEN THE COW
AND THE MORIBUND
A book by MIGUEL OSCAR MENASSA
am tense, I have appetites, hungers of millenniums and now they'll want to
content me with some piece of cheese, excrescence of some pastoral cow, or the
same cow beaten to death and quartered on the table, recalling
ancient rites, where men ate
each other, and that was love.
I stab my small knife mercilessly into the cow's heart and the cow moos, it tears itself with passion in front of the murderer. I, with surgical precision, separate grease and nerves and I give my beloved one a morsel from the cow's burnt ovaries.
-We're free, she says to me, while she entertains herself with the noise of her teeth trying to chew the burnt parts of the universe. Later, lighter, making a mirage of everything, a lie, she says to me with ease:
A magisterial cow that moos and murders all the time lives in me. Sometimes she seems in pain, but nothing matters to her, she knows that she was born to be beaten to death, and then she shits everywhere and the mad flowers eat what is essential of shit and grow rapidly towards the future."
AN UNLIMITED DESIRE
