Remembering New York, imagining New York
It must have been Erota
luring me with her
olives and her wine
Hitler said ” Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” to counter the argument that it would be impossible to “get away” with wiping out the Jews. That´s what pushing a genocide under the rug will do; beget another one.
There´s no more reality on Facebook than on the Hollywood-style broadcast of the Irak war.
Though I knew little about Ebert and had never seen him, in my mind, he was not necessarily a “nice” man, more like a Neptune with his trident, letting films pass in front of him, and decreeing which ones would live and which ones would be sentenced to death.
I have a friend who is obsessed with muses. She keeps saying, jokingly, “what did she have that I don´t?” referring to women like Gala, who inspired Paul Éluard, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí alike.
This land of low clouds
and scattered islands
No, this is not a post about how wonderful it is to travel round the world. It is about the death of children, the most unnatural of all unnatural things upon our ailing Earth.
