Translation - Portrait with the pencil
I am scattered in exile.
I walk the streets of nothing.
I loved thousands of women... yes.
I abandoned thousands of women... yes.
And I left them with all courtesy...
when the boredom struck me...
And I locked away all the notebooks concerning my love.¨
For my true love... was the pen..
