"I am completely different.
Though I am wearing the same tie as yesterday,
am as poor as yesterday,
as good for nothing as yesterday,
Though I am wearing the same clothes,
am as drunk as yesterday,
living as clumsily as yesterday, nevertheless
I am completely different.
I patiently close my eyes
on all the grins and smirks,
on all the twisted smiles and horse laughs-
one beautiful white butterfly
fluttering towards tomorrow."
