My father said: You have a tendency towards metaphysics

Still I schooled you in the means of production

when your milk teeth were intact

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My mother said: Your father lived for the day of judgement

So did your mother, but she was forced to other ambitions

Translated by Jennifer Hayashida

Min far sa: Du har en dragning åt metafysik

Ändå skolade jag dig i produktionens beskaffenhet

när dina mjölktänder var intakta

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Min mor sa: Din far levde för den yttersta dagen

Din mor likaså, men hon tvingades till andra ambitioner
