12 Caballeros


In mid-2009, during my honeymoon, a kalimba found me. Its resonance and kindness in allowing to be touched in a harmonious way by any mortal instantly captivated me.

Sometimes, while I doze, I play it and think. One night it took me to the following unfinished dream:

12 Caballeros
7 Tiros
quizás 8
Time/tiempo
3:30 a.m.
Lloraron.
12 Gentlemen
7 Shots
maybe 9
Tiempo/time
3:30 a.m.
They cried.

El oro de los tigres se hace sombra
Because of a sacrifice.

Amanece
Aparenta venganza
Respira
Viento
4 Gentlemen
No shots
Dawn
Is revenge
Breath
Wind
3 Caballeros
Sin tiros

Ahora sin violencia ni destino,
esperan la llegada del hombre niño.
They wait and think.
Ya no hay amenaza, they are only dreamers.
Red.
Blue.
Verde.

Their children
Sus hijos

Dicen que cada tigre pidió 7 tiros para dejarse vencer.
The murderers sat down. Nunca olvidaron.

Awake
Despierto
