(ENGLISH TRANSLATION BELOW)

Hueco En La Celda

Mira aquí.
Yo pienso así.
Ese hueco en la celda es pa’mi.
Hay un hueco en la celda.

Hay un hueco en la celda
donde vivía mi culebra.

A real snake.
Not a metaphor of a snake.
A woman or a thing.
A real snake.

Ahora la culebra vive entre nosotros
pero hoy se escapo.
Hizo un hueco en la pared
y por ahí se escapo.

Mi culebra se llamaba Maritza
and with Maritza I would watch TV.
and with Maritza I would watch TV.

A real snake.

Many years later. I moved to another city
and my brother called my old phone.
And a guy answered
and my brother said…um… he said
“Hello is Abraham there?”
“You mean the guy with the snake?”

And to this day I have never seen the snake.
It must be living in the combat zone.
In the combat zone.

Hole in The Cell

See here.
I think this way.
That the hole in the cell is for me.
There's a hole in the cell.

There's a hole in the cell
where my snake lived.

A real snake.
Not a metaphor of a snake.
A woman or a thing.
A real snake.

Now the snake lives amogst us
but today he escaped.
She made a hole in the wall
and through there she escaped.

My snake was named Maritza
and With Maritza I would watch TV.
and with Maritza and I would watch TV.

A real snake.

Many years later . I Moved to another city
and my brother called my old phone .
And a guy answered
and my brother said ... um ... I Said
"Hello is Abraham is there? "
"You mean the guy with the snake ? "

And to this day I have never seen the snake .
It must be living in the combat zone .
In the combat zone .
