El hombre desafortunado // The unfortunate man (by Duane Michals, 1976)

“El hombre desafortunado no podía tocar a quien amaba. Había sido declarado ilegal por la ley. Poco a poco sus dedos se convirtieron en dedos de los pies y sus manos se convirtieron gradualmente en pies. Comenzó a usar zapatos en sus manos para ocultar su dolor. Nunca se le ocurrió volver a violar la ley.”

“The unfortunate man could not touch the one he loved. It had been declared illegal by the law. Slowly his fingers became toes and his hands gradually became feet. He began to wear shoes on his hands to disguise his pain. It never occurs to him to break the law.”
