Hombre con bola de cristal // Man with crystal ball (by Duane Michals, 1989)

El hombre que vio el futuro siempre olvidó el pasado.
Porque vio que lo que sería, supo que nunca permanecería.
Estuvo siempre en el centro, pero el centro no estaba allí.
Realmente no importaba, y realmente no le importó.
Porque sabía que cuando muriera, no iría a ninguna parte.

//

The man who saw the future always forgot the past.
For he saw that what would be, he knew would never last.
He was always in the middle, but the middle wasn’t there.
It really didn’t matter, and he really didn’t care.
For he knew that when he died, he wasn’t going anywhere.
