La Cama

Marcelo Suaznabar: La Cama, courtesy GF Contemporary

I am athletic and humorous

I wonder why when some people get in trouble they laugh

I hear the crack of the bat during a baseball game on television

I see the mountains in my backyard

I want to travel to Spain

I am athletic and humorous

I pretend that I can fly

I feel the warmth of my house on a cold day

I touch the soft blanket on my bed

I worry about failing

I cry when I lose a loved one

I am athletic and humorous

I understand that I must get an education

I say that there should be no wars

I dream of being a professional baseball player

I am athletic and humorous
