The Old Man and the Sea

A beyblade-induced poem-karaoke inspired by failure and human nature. Each chapter elaborates on a different context with its impossibilities in which to be defeated. The chapters are triggered by the three different languages I speak fluently and, therefore, the different ways language defines how I exist; Spanish with my family, Portuguese in my life in Lisbon, and English in my life in Amsterdam. Every Beyblade battle becomes a dead-end road where the only possibility is to keep on spinning.
