(Spoiler alert -- final thoughts)
I, Veronica, patient of myself...trying to think about life in another way. Thinking about life. Life as it were a film. Once upon a time... a film that would start deep inside my head...and would reveal a whole different world. A world with a happy-ending. My own kind of happy-ending. Life falling over me. Be welcome. On this gentle afternoon that pays no attention to me. Death that suits well. Come to me now. While I am not paying attention. This golden afternoon that brings. Joy to ordinary people. Doesn't fool me anymore. This afternoon that warms my belly. Beneath my black shirt. And my belly button. Wrapped in this warmth playing dead. ONCE UPON TIME WAS I, VERÔNICA.
It feels nothing. Just emptiness.

Thinking of her father:
I'm going to celebrate
this day with a song...
Those who miss someone
Are never alone.
Cause their affection
Keeps them company.
So when I'm most alone
I have you with me in my heart.
A smile, a hug, a flower.
It's all you in my imagination.
Serpentine or confetti
Carnival of love.
It's all you in my heart.
You exist as an angel of goodness.
And accompany me
In this nostalgic frevo.
