In Remembrance of King Bhumibol Adulyadej
5 December 1927 – 13 October 2017

When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past.
When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it.
เมื่อฉันออกเสียงคำว่า “อนาคต”
เมื่อฉันออกเสียคำว่า “เงียบ”

Wisława Szymborska, Poems New and Collected
