Alguien que no soy yo written by Alí Calderón
Translated from the Spanish by Alejandra González Jiménez
Someone I’m not is identical to me in everything and pursues my steps and follows me. Someone else enunciates my words and steals my actions. My memory is remembered by someone else. Someone else keeps an eye on me. Someone else of whom I’m an alternative creeps up in the mirror and copies one by one even the most unnoticeable grimaces. To my likeness and precise reflection I’m not me but rather someone’s image.
