Take a look at the first two stanzas of the work, in both English and Spanish. Buy a copy of the issue here.

They say I seem old,
But I am alive in my decrepitude,
And they are dead in their puberty.

They criticize me for being boring,
But my inactivity is creative,
And their actions are sterile.

Me dicen que parezco viejo;
Pero yo estoy vivo en mi decrepitud
Y ellos están muertos en su pubertad.

Me critican por ser aburrido;
Pero mi inactividad es creativa
Y sus disposiciones son estériles.
