For happy endings, from Selected Translations, by W.S. Merwin.
from The Creation of the Moon / by Anonymous (Caxinua/Amazon)
So the head started to think what it would turn into.
If it turned into water they would drink it.
If it turned into earth they would walk on it.
If it turned into a house they would live on it.
If it turned into a steer they would kill it and eat it.
