Lista de delirios de los dementes: a qué le tienen miedo | David Antin

Versión de Román Luján

 

a la policía

a ser envenenados

a que los maten

a estar solos

a ser atacados de noche

a ser pobres

a que los sigan de noche

a perderse en una multitud

a estar muertos

a no tener estómago

a no tener entrañas

a tener un hueso en la garganta

a perder dinero

a no ser aptos para vivir

a estar enfermos de un mal misterioso

a no ser capaces de apagar la luz

a no ser capaces de cerrar la puerta

a que se meta un animal de la calle

a que no van a recuperarse

a que los van a asesinar

a que los van a asesinar mientras duermen

a que los van a asesinar cuando despierten

a que haya asesinatos a su alrededor

a que haya asesinos a su alrededor

a que van a ver al asesino

a que no lo van a ver

a que los van a hervir vivos

a que los van a matar de hambre

a que les van a hacer comer cosas asquerosas

a que le echen cosas asquerosas a su comida y su bebida

a que su carne esté hirviendo

a que les van a cortar la cabeza

a que se estén quemando niños

a estar muriendo de hambre

a que le hayan quitado todos los nutrientes a la comida

a que hayan puesto químicos malignos en la tierra

a que haya químicos malignos en el aire

a que comer sea inmoral

a estar en el infierno

a escuchar gente gritando

a oler carne quemada

a haber cometido un pecado imperdonable

a que haya entidades desconocidas haciendo el mal en el mundo

a no tener identidad

a estar en llamas

a no tener cerebro

a estar cubiertos de alimañas

a que les estén robado sus propiedades

a que les estén matando a sus hijos

a haber robado algo

a tener demasiado que comer

a que les hayan dado cloroformo

a que los hayan cegado

a haberse quedado sordos

a haber sido hipnotizados

a ser instrumentos de otro poder

a que los hayan obligado a asesinar

a que los van a condenar a la silla eléctrica

a que gente los haya estado insultando

a merecer esos insultos

a estar cambiando de sexo

a que su sangre se haya convertido en agua

a que su cuerpo se esté transformando en vidrio

a que les estén saliendo insectos del cuerpo

a despedir mal olor

a que se estén quemando casas a su alrededor

a que se esté quemando gente a su alrededor

a que se estén quemando niños a su alrededor

a que se estén quemando casas

a haber cometido suicidio del alma
