English to Italian translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature / Testo teatrale
English term or phrase:giving you the gears
monologo teatrale. Un uomo ha appena saputo che la sua partner è incinta ed è divorato dai dubbi sulla sua responsabilità di padre. Lascia il lavoro e vede nemici dappertutto.
It's not a heart attack. The last time it happened they said my heart was fine. Acid in the stomach. Drinking too much, it's quitting work, they're giving you the gears, trying to make you weak, like them, weak.
La mia proposta parziale:
Bevuto troppo, lasciato il lavoro, ..., cercando di farti sentire debole, come loro, debole.
