Should you ever need to write a poem,
choose to write it in a language
that you are not very sure of.
This way, by putting words together
in new, unusual combinations,
they will think you did it on purpose,
praise you as a genius,
applaud you and ask you
what do you think about this
or that matter.
In that very moment, when everyone is looking,
you stand up before they could forget you
that very day, week, or the years after
And, with an appropriate pronunciation,
The voice trembling in your neck
Like the flicker of eternity,
Say it loud!
Say it loud and clear
for the future generations,
that your poem’s splendor
lies in your laziness
to look up in a dictionary.
