Trick by Domenico Starnone (Translated from the Italian by Jhumpa Lahiri):
The child studied me attentively.
--Are you sick?
--A little, I’m old. The cold and the rain can make me sick.
--When will you die?
--My dad says when mean people die you don’t have to be sorry.
--I’m not mean, I’m distracted.
--Even though you’re distracted I’ll cry when you die.
--No, your dad said you don’t need to feel sorry.
--I’ll still cry.
