Analect 2.148x

8 August 2007. Gray roof against gray sky. Darkened end of pool, scaffolding all the way to arched ceiling. Young guard in red sweatshirt, red shoes, hand to the side of her face--pensiveness in an unexpected setting. Two hooded figures, alone, facing a wide streambed. Glauber Rocha? A donkey in between them, nestled, wicker basket alongside. The arroyo disappears into break in distant hills.

Boulders and chaparral--the back country, gray-green leaves and a wash of red clay--an unexpected balance. Mining for gold, some ninety years ago. "I made a garment..."

Lagarto y libélula...
