GreenStageAlliance: APRIL "Dark Year of the Penguin"

APRIL "Dark Year of the Penguin"

Let’s play death
Let’s play ghost’s
never to be seen!
We enter the offices where we were not allowed,
urinating in desk’s drawers,
Lets go through the cracks of the doors
to their houses
not letting them reconcile with sleep,
repeating in their ears the word shadow,
we dilute,
we run through the sewer pipes,
and dynamite the city,
we remain smiling next to the detonator,
I wait for your signal,
and you for mine,
but neither one of us dares

She picks up the phone
and the world goes around
voices dispersing between doubts and fears
voices that call her from a far
and the words are a fragile bridge of madness
towards flickering faces
of the nigth
Like the lights of a city not yet invented
whose streets she wonders by memory,
then the lights begin to dim
But the voices still exist in the darkness,
and the nigth is immense,
So immense, that now the voices
will speak from the stars
and the sound of their lights will be subtle
like the echo of an incomprehensible cry
calling, calling from a distance
until that time
the telephone ceases to scream like a cornered animal
It's useless to ask the operator
the number of the stars,
Because in her head the voice of the impossible will ring,
The song of an unexplainable bird,
and her conversation will fly
towards that anxious voice
that has always called her,
That encounter beyond fears and mirrors...
The operator will repeat
"long distance... long distance"
It will be the longest call of her life,
the only one she will never be able to pay

HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY !!! Happy deserts, mountains and forests from the Joshua Tree to the Mojave from Santa Monica to Manhattan from Sea to Sea from Me. ...Happy Birthday America. 
President Barrack Obama today designated three new national monuments in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
They are the Sand to Snow National Monument, Mojave Trails National Monument, and Castle Mountains National Monument, and the administration says they’ll protect approximately 1.8 million acres of landscapes, fragile wildlife habitat, historic resources and important cultural sites.
The new monuments connect Mojave National Preserve, Joshua Tree National Park, San Bernardino National Forest, and fifteen wilderness areas previously designated by Congress, creating a contiguous mass of protected lands stretching hundreds of miles.
