    I would call this 'Proclamation without Pretension or Poetry.' I hate to sound like LP, but there is really no sound to this, and it's very didactic.
    There's no attachment to show who translated this so it can only be judged as a translation, and in my book, that is always judged as a second poem and a collaboration between poet and translator.
    The lines I liked best were:
    'UNIQUE we are a seal of NOTHING
    We affirm the VITALITY of every IN-
    STANT'
