--- K A R M E L O   C .  I R I B A R R E N

translated by Mark Ostrowski

You wanted sincerity above all else. That between us, you said, there would never be perfidies or secrets. That doubt would never settle in our hearts. You wanted sincerity, at any price. And as far as I know, that is all I did, be sincere, when I told you that I had spent a night with your friend. So now I don't know what to make of these insults, or these rabid looks, or these tears. Sincerely, I don't know who you think you are.
