Cold.

Cold dead bones

In a cold dead bed

With a cold dead sheet

And boney cold flowers

Hideous freezing memories

Rising from the dead

Gravestones whistling loudly

People praying silently

Mourning words of peace

Finding madness instead

Crimine!Crimine! La libertà!

“Infimi sciacalli, pennivendoli!”

 

Non si fa altro che sentire di complotti, diffamazioni e nell’Italia del 2018 non vi è altro che una manciata di fake news e post su Facebook. Un vero e proprio attacco all’editoria, alla vera ragione per cui, ogni giorno, si cerca di diffondere la verità, la stessa  che la Costituzione protegge.

La libera informazione è minacciata dal terrore, dalla politica e dagli stessi giornalisti corrotti che, tradendo la loro vera natura, vengono pagati dai partiti per alimentare l’odio incontrollato.

Tra i migranti che desiderano l’abbonamento a Sky, tra i sopravvissuti mandati dalle ONG solo per rovinare il Paese, non vi è più spazio per il genuino ruolo che le parole occupano, ovvero quello di diffondere il vero. La sacrosanta verità, quella che dovrebbe essere presente in ogni trafiletto, ora è schiacciata dalla vergogna, dalla paura e dagli stessi sentimenti che nemmeno l’uomo concepisce ma che lo ha portato inevitabilmente a commettere atti simili, ad agire come un sofista cercando di portare avanti una campagna politica senza fine. I sofismi e le urla concitate, insomma, hanno coinvolto qualsiasi settore dell’informazione e l’epidemia si diffonde senza fine e, anziché essere fermata, viene alimentata per scopi futuri. Si ha a cura l’interesse personale più che quello delle menti, delle voci, del popolo e questa strada, ormai sovraffollata, conduce al buco nero dell’ignoranza. Chi vuole leggere solo che i vaccini causano l’autismo? Che danneggiano i bambini e sono stati creati dalle case farmaceutiche solo per ottenere qualche banconota in più? Che l’Europa ci è avversa e che le banche mirano solo al collasso economico? Chi vuole leggere solo di trame campate per aria?  Chi di attrici? Chi di scollature e gonne troppo corte? Delle mogli e dei loro affari domestici?

La libertà di condividere, di commentare, di pensare diversamente è un nostro diritto fondamentale e non può essere cancellato dalla carta dei diritti per dei motivi futili. Ognuno di noi deve avere l’opportunità di prendere un giornale tra le mani- o anche uno smartphone- e di avere davanti un panorama ampio e onesto del mondo che lo circonda. Dobbiamo sapere, dobbiamo conoscere i dati, le statistiche attendibili e non le pagine sterili di giornali vuoti o politici, pieni di insulti e rancore. Dobbiamo essere aperti al mondo, al conoscere il diverso, l’economia, la cultura, a nessuno serve la rassegnazione, la misoginia, l’ignoranza, la stoltezza per guidare un paese, dei cittadini non abituati all’attività più naturale: il pensiero. Non possiamo vivere in un mondo alterato, incapaci di distinguere la realtà dalla fantasia. La libertà, la verità devono essere preservate in tutti i modi possibili e spetta a noi, anche con i più piccoli contributi, supportare le testate editoriali e cercare di combattere la disinformazione nei modi migliori.

Rêves

J’ai des rêves
Mais maintenant sont poussière,
J’ai des idées
Mais maintenant sont paroles,
Paroles que je n’explique pas
car il sont dures et difficiles,
Paroles d’espoir
Mais paroles de souffrance.
J’ai rêvé l’or et l’argent,
J’ai rêvé les Dieux
Et le hibou
Q’à le tombée de la nuit
M’annonce la sagesse
Et l’esprit de la calme.
J’attends la mite
Qui me guide à la lumière.

Porcelain

Porcelain spilled all over the sea
Floating lightly
Your white heart lost in the waves
Fragile as it is
Following the storms
Revolving all around
Trying to recompose
From the light and thunder
Shattered into pieces

The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Myself, Diego and Señor Xólotl (1949)

the-love-embrace-of-the-universe-the-earth-mexico-myself-diego-and-señor-xólotl-1949

The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Myself, Diego and Señor Xólotl (1949) is a self-portrait that celebrates the final resolution of the Riveras’ marriage. Here Frida is the earth mother/Madonna nurturing the baby she could never have – her “Dieguito.” Now she does not need to clasp him tightly, for the couple’s union is sustained by a series of love embraces that roots them in the Mexican earth and in the ancient dark/light duality of a pre-Columbian universe. Even Frida’s itzcuintli dog, Xolotl, is encompassed by this vast interlocking pyramid of love.
