    • 2012, Rabih Alameddine, La dona de paper
      Sobre la camisa de dormir del meu son abandonat, sobre la bata de la vergonya que vaig viure ahir, em poso la jaqueta de moher color bordeus que sempre em salva aquests primers matins d'hivern. Com que el pis és vell i no està ben aïllat, des de dins notes els vents hivernals i també els sents.
      Over the nightshirt of my abandoned sleep, over the robe of yesterday's embarrassment, I put on the burgundy mohair jacket which always saves me on these first winter mornings. As the flat is old and not well-insulated, you notice the winter winds from inside and you also feel them.
