Jaime Sabines: When You Feel Like Dying

When you feel like dying
Hide your head under your pillow
And count four thousand sheep.
Go two days without eating
And you'll see just how beautiful life is:
Meat, beans, bread.
Have your wife leave you: you'll see.

When you feel like dying,
Don't get so worked up about it:
Just die.
