José viajaba tranquilamente
en una unidá de transporte colectivo,
pensando en cualquier cosa,
cuando de pronto sintió que le golpeaban el hombro
y una voz, una voz de nene le decía:
"imaginate camellos, imaginate camellos".
Y José, que no encontró razones
para no hacerle caso, se imaginó camellos.
Y el nene dijo "Ahora imaginate
que vas por el desierto y estás muerto de sé".
Y José se lo imaginó.
Entonces el nene le dijo
"imaginate que hay tres tipos
que te están rompiendo la cabeza a piñas
mientras vos tenés las manos atadas",
y a José ya no le gustó;
pero quisiera o no, ya lo había imaginado.
Entonces el nene le dijo
"ahora imaginate que estás
en una tribuna del estadio sentado
y desde la cancha viene una pelota,
un tiro de meta mas que desviado
y justo se te mete a vos adentro de la boca
y por mas que trates de sacarte la pelota no podés".
Entonces José se dio vuelta
y como vio que el nene estaba con la madre,
dijo "señora, hágalo callar, hágalo callar".
Y la madre dijo "nene, callate dejá
tranquilo al señor".
Entonces José sintió una gran calma interior
y pudo concentrar toda su voluntá
para pensar en un electrodoméstico
mientras en el fondo del mate todavía
quedaban resonancias de una canción
que en ese mismo día ce equis no sé cuánto
había transmitido por milésima vez.
"A mí nadie me dice que tengo que pensar,
yo pienso lo que quiero y así vivo feliz".

Jose was travelling quietly
in an unit of collective transport,
thinking in anything,
when suddenly he felt the was being poked in the shoulder
and a voice, a voice of a kid was saying:
"picture camels, picture camels".
And José, who didn't find reasons
to not paying him attention, he pictured camels.
And the kid said "Now picture
yourself in the desert and dying of thirst"
And José pictured it.
Then the kid said
"picture three guys
beating the hell out of you
while you have your hands tied",
and José didn't like it;
but wanting it or not, he already pictured it.
Then the kid said
"now picture yourself
sitting in a stand of the stadium
and from the field comes a ball,
a very deflected goal-kick
and it gets right in your mouth
and no matter you try, you can't take the ball out of your mouth".
Then José turned around
and as he saw that the kid was with his mother
said "Mrs, quiet him, quiet him"
And the mother said "kid, hush and
leave the man alone".
Then José felt a great inner calm
and could gather all his will
to think of an electrical appliance
while in the bottom of the head were still
remaining sounds of a song
that in that very day some radio station
had played for the nth time.
"Nobody tells me what I need to think,
I think in whatever I want and I live happy with that"
