Маленькие кусочки моего тела по всему полу моей комнаты.
Иногда они двигаются.
Я закрыл дверь.
Ты говоришь со мной, но я тебя не слышу, не совсем.
Где-то в здании закрывается еще одна дверь.
Я закрываю глаза.
Животное падает,
Я поднимаю его, оно больше не живет.
И я, я мертв, как оно, уже слишком долго.

English Translation:

There is
little bits of my body, all over my bedroom floor.
Sometimes they move.
I closed the door.
You’re talking to me, but I can’t hear you, not quite well.
Somewhere in the building, another door is shut.
I close my eyes.
The animal falls,
I pick it up, it doesn’t live anymore.
And I, I died, like it, long ago already.
