The Cuatro Cienegas desert

1The desert greeted us gently. Clouds lined the ramparts. The sun behind. Behind. Behind. The water, from above, took care of us. This was the hug. 2Green-eyed. Blue-eyed. Copper-eyed. Gray-eyed. Amber-eyed. This is the look of the pools. 3A soft sun makes the second day burn, it is filtered by a certain mist. Little by little he sniffed our backs, arms and eyes. Who is safe from his mark that is life, that is death? 4Under our feet the ground moves, it lets out soft puffs. And I'm hungry for pelicans, for their white winter trail here. But this spring I wake up to see the stilts' beaks and their scavenging in the mud for insects. 5The burning doesn't matter. Fish and turtles still find places to run, to be. How much longer will they be saved in their territories, yours th...

Heart

1That heart was leaking through his feet and through his hands. Its large size was embarrassing. How could he explain this when a cup of tea was served to him and his heart tried to come out of his sleeves to smell that honey-spiced delicacy? 2Lying on the bed she is a boat moved by the waves that is the pulse of her heart. You can see the body shot, where that pump is pulling. 3Silent cardinal on your chest, that's how that bird sleeps and gives it life. 4The fist of his heart is muscular. 5He likes to listen to the hearts of others. When possible measure pitch and speed. There are hearts with deep and serious sounds. Others, high-pitched, resemble a whistle in a hurry, like their father's. 6He has eaten hearts, tiny and in shades of brown. As a child, I would see them sailing in t...

Figures and child heroes with feet of clay

The situation is complex if we consider that a hero or a heroine embodies the feeling of a class - or the discourse is distorted so that it embodies it. That is why the rewriting of history based on inquiries and evidence is transcendent that, even when they are perfectible because they are also clippings of the documentary reality, allow us to interpret with other lights events in the field of history of personalities that symbolize power, the truth , justice and libertarian action. An interesting mirror is the one that is transferred between caudillos and religious figures. Even the sculptures account for this, which in many cases are responsible for generating devotional attitudes. Added to this is the narrative, which sometimes speaks of revolutionary processes as if it were speakin...

My mother’s thirst

1How did this happen to orange trees, tangerines and lemon balm! This of freezing in winter until their vegetable bones. How! When the summer was going to be dry as a dead man's throat. 2Plants miss people more than people, my mother, in love with gardens. 3The red and yellow ribbons between the trunks continue in their undulation, they are linked to the dry bodies that show traces of the saw. 4The garden peeler is faced with a hose. There goes Enrique. Change at midday, the thread of water so that something turns green in that dust that continues to gain ground. 5For years the house was shaded by orange trees. Now she feels alone in her whiteness. 6I hold a thin arm of the persimmon that has been damaged by the dog. Enrique places soft green thread around it to make it stick what h...

Ideas with the sound of metallic vibrations

1By dint of sounds that we hear, or that we percussion, they awaken ideas that would not be manifested in the world without them. Sound, then, is the father of some ideas. Ideas have infinite fathers and mothers. 2Now the eyes of the fish are an inconvenience to the conscience, that is why some cans give bodies without eyes. 3Animal skins that were used in the past to cover newborn beds are an ethical problem. Where to put them? Burn them? Save them? Think about the moment of the death of the beef or the snitch? 4We are proud of armies and their armaments. We then convulsed at the results. 5Everything that has been born, existed previously, far from its form but moving towards it, with a calm and clear intention. 6Is thinking more harmful than feeling? 7Also synthetic leathers and ...

Corn in the hands of darkness: Bayer-Monsanto and Judge Javier Rebolledo

My mother's father planted rainfed corn, without any fertilizer. That was the corn that his family ate, that was the corn that he sold. Long fields where harvests alternated. A story that was multiplied in these northern lands, by the number of families that used to sow to feed themselves and to live.Science is wrong and it can be dark, working at the service of companies like Bayer, which through its subsidiary, Monsanto, proposes to continue contaminating the corn crops that have been born in these lands for generations, is a clear mistake. Just as there are scientists paid by Monsanto, the judges have also found themselves working against the well-being and health of the population. It has been Francisco Javier Rebolledo, sixth District Judge in Administrative Matters, who has grant...
