بَعْدَ أَنْ أُنْهِيَ حَيَاتِيَ الجَمْيلَةَ

قَبْلَ أَنْ يُصْبِحَ جَسَدي عَالَمـًا لِلدِيدَانِ

سَأَصْنَعُ مِنْ عِظَامِيَ كُوخًا نَسْكُنُ فِيه

جُمْجُمَتي سَتَكوَن دَورَقًا لِلنَبيذِ

سَأَجْمَعُ شَعْرِيَ لِأَ صْنَعَ حِبَالَ أُرجُوحَةٍ لَكِ أُثَبِتُهَا عَلَى الأَرْضِ بِأسْنَاني

سَأوَزِعُ قَلْبِيّ وَرِئتيّ وَالكِلْيتينِ عَلَى الفُقَرَاءِ

وَأَتْرُكُ أَصَابِعِي تُمَسِّدُ شَعْرَكِ بِاسْتِثنَاءِ الأَوسَطِ

هَذَا سَأتْرُكُهُ لِيَبْقَى مَرفُوعًا فِي وَجْهِ الحُكُوَمَاتِ.
 

After I've ended my beautiful life

Before my body turns into a world for worms
I shall make a hut out of my bones, where we will live
My skull will be a wine vessel
I will collect my hair to make swing ropes for you, which I will peg to the ground with my teeth
I will distribute my heart, lungs and kidneys to the poor
And I will leave my fingers to caress your hair, except the middle finger
This I will keep it raised in the face of governments.
