embrace us hunger
respond to our call
become a weapon
of these prisoners on strike.
We still don´t feel your wounding havoc
yet we yearn it
we rather die through your action
than see ourselves humiliated, dispossessed,
by our jail wardens.
Leave alone in peace
those who are humble on earth
and see through the jail bars
turning into a liberating sword.
Does it not flatter you
That someone claims for your presence?
I´m sure it must flatter you and also seem strange.
About that, and many other issues
i would like to explain to you
but today there is no time.
You are already here, burning our entrails, slowly
i already travel on your fantastic clouds
i can feel transported in spirals
Immensely with an infinite laxness.
do not detain yourself
until the attack has ceased
by those agents of the anti-history.
And what if she does not cease?
continue your implacable advance
until you paralyze our hearts
they shall beat even with more strength
still being under ground
because the morale of these prisoners
after all and above all
continues to be irreductible.
(Written on the tenth day of his hunger strike)
