L'aura del campo

'é a lua, é a lua, na quintana dos mortos'
♣ Federico García Lorca ♣

Higgins Street Bridge, April 25th  2009, Missoula, Montana

L'aura del campo. A breeze in the meadow. So it began the last day of Spring, 2005; on the 16th day of the month of Light of the year 162. This is a supplement to my daily journal written to a friend, my muse; notes I do not share. Here I will share what the breeze has whispered to me.


On a practical note, in answer to your questions:

When I ran away my problems hitched a ride with me. No... you can't leave them behind. Life doesn't work that way. But one s.o.b. hasn't found me yet; which is okay, because I'd be dead not sad. Yes, I'm sad. All the friends I made. All the memories stuffed into the back closet of my mind. They come out at night to haunt me.

But I should be glad. I had a very good year and then the shit hit the fan. When I finally got back on my feet I moved again. One doesn't leave one's problems behind, but one can get a respite to breathe.

So I breathe. Many years later I still run away but politely say, "I travel".

Don't be mad I'm way less sad

I'm running running I'm running running
I'm running running — I can't stay

running running running, I'm way less sad
running running running, running away

I'm running running I'm running running
I'm running running — don't be mad

running running running, running away
running running running, I'm way less sad

I write about you in invisible script
worn into rock over thousands of centuries.
I saw your kind born and will be there when they die.
This tale isn't finished.

You call me by a hundred names and a thousand others
long forgotten by relatives who you can't remember,
those myth-makers who handed down warnings
that I still existed.

I've outlived them all. And now you search
for my secret hiding place and for immortality.
They aren't for sharing, but I'll give you the same hints
that I gave long ago.

I'm everywhere around you. I hide where you never look.
Those who depend on eyes to see will never find me. I'm closer
than your life's vein. The script I etch upon your soul's indelible,
my words eternal Truth.
