17 years after his death…
Like a gale that crushes the foundations of buildings and brains.
Like a merciless and brutal volcano that with its channel burns to its wide margins that oppress.
Like a jaguar digging its fangs. Tearing skins, muscles and organs of any intruder.
Your energy floats over our aggressive steps. And your eternal escape impregnates us with the boldness in life that had your animalistic footprint.
Compañero, ancestor and guide. Wherever your enormous existence drained of corporeality roams, here we embrace it from confinement.
Caged by the same bars that imprisoned you, and pointed by the same canons of plastic and miserable understanding of life, its essence and its beauty, which judged you. We smiled at you looking at the clouds and their shapes.
Fire, roar and an exorbitant love. That only an anti-speciesist of action can understand. That is what we invoke in your memory and honor. William C. Rodgers “Avalon”.*
“I live in the pupils and quickened pulses of those who make total liberation, more than pictures of wild animals on networks, instagram stories and dusty books.”
