Indifferent

Yes: I exist inside my body.
I’m not carrying the sun and the moon in my pocket
I don’t want to conquer worlds because I slept badly,
And I don’t want to eat the world for breakfast
because I have a stomach.
Indifferent?
No: a son of the earth, who, if he jumps, it’s wrong,
A moment in the air that’s not for us,
And only happy when his feet hit the ground again,
Pow! In reality where nothing’s missing!

~ Alberto Caeiro (6/20/1919)
