Para Migliaccio

Ofereço a Flavio Migliaccio, cujo bilhete de despedida, assim como sua vida, agora incluo em minha memória literária:

“I have had my invitation to this world’s festival,
and thus my life has been blessed.

My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.

It was my part at this feast to play upon my instrument, and I have done all I could.”
