Just….interpret this as you can fancy…I have the last guess here..in this poem.This image has been created with the blending of my own photographs, all worked in Photoshop.The most valuable tool here, I bet has been the distortion one. Precious for creating the circular prespective of the sky. And the spherizing filter too. Besides that I have had a hard job with the selection of the benches….all of them are real. The dummies is my loving “madness” I love them

The great stage is at hand.
A circle of penetrating information,
peace and war sold at a bargain,
meditated gossiping…pearls of fiction.
Fools dummies of tender visions,
delicate armies of nonsensical apparatus.
The circle is closing around the conversation,
audible paranoia of doubtful interpretation.
The audience is snoring behind the glasses,
where politicians magnify the daily treats,
and undervalue the daily treasures.
No one can touch them…
no one can move them…dummy souls.
No one can sniff their perfumes,
or imitate their gait in regalia,
neither can they see beyond their jokes…
in fact…no one can laugh at their laughings,
for the tears are lost….and mystifying
the monotonous monologues.
Too tired to dance with the mob,
too sophisticated to share latrines,
too sweaty behind their laces,
strangled love under pressurized brains.
And I am thinking…
next time…
I will close the circle…
and will bring a whole orchestra
to sound loud and whole,
and reversing the trumpets of Jericho
will build a huge missile…
and with all of you…shattering…
in there from fear and cold..
launch it to another dimension,
to hit the vacuum of your hearts..
and wait…
until next spring,
to see how…
your silence…
unexpectedely
has grown.

    Sí! Sabía que era tuya….
    Muy buena.
    Hoy estuve buscando imágenes de estos modelitos para armar algo, y al final me decidí por un maniquí…

    Estoy cocinando y me escapé dos minutos de la cocina, pero no el tiempo suficiente para leer el poema….
    Volveré…

  • Bueno…
    me imagino que tiene ya el “trade mark”·..igual que tus trabajos.
    Eso dicen que es bueno….¿no?
    No vayas tan rápida que as a envejecer antes por el stress….je ,je, je.
    La verdad es que el poema me ha salido con muy mala leche.
    Existe un especimen que es el político, que me tiene hasta las narices.
    Y la “caja tonta” es e más abyecto de los podiums donde parece que se van a tirar a la piscina…pero ni por esas.
    Sin embargo…cuando monté “escenario” puse mucho cariño en mis muñecos….Es extraño cómo se van uniendo las cosas para formar un “teatrillo”..
    Besitos..y muchas gracias, Pelusa

    What a fabulous and moving image this is dear Rosa. It says so much – which is ironic given that you want to shatter the silence. This is poetry and art at its very best. The way you have the people sitting is just so good – we can feel their frustration so well.
    xx

  • I really want to “summon” the silence…not to shatter it…
    oh…shattering is what we use to hear them speak….and well…yes..they are frustrated, because, they cannot move by themselves…they have to be removed from their stillness, by power, money, privileges…and once in a while..a wish to help the society to grow…I am not a cynic….I beleive that there are good souls, trying to do things well..but..I have to dedicate my sarcasm and “mala leche”· (bad blood) produced by what I see and what I hear….
    Thanks a lot dear Anna…good to see you again …how was your vacation?
    A hug.

    they decided long ago to meet in a different city spot every ten years and have a cup of coffee..share in the times ..to be there at the moment not in the befores nor in the afters..no masks on their faces, but colors to brighten the moments..when they share every ten years..i thought of a family separated by thoughts…but still a family…this like all of your work has me thinking..and smiling…hello to you and hugs dear rosa…:)terri
  • Oh Terri….of course!!! that could be another different view..feelings of this trio.
    Yes…what is true is that they are wearing different hats, and that could mean that they are really different in their heads..as we beleive we all are. But there is not a coffee table in the middle that would help them to hide their inner intentions..they they are posing their bodies…nothing is there….they are specifically naked, but as they too have deleted their features of the faces..no one is going to mind or worry about the expressions…it is strange. I have an inkling for dummies, and mannequins…they are totemic..unconspicous..
    Thank you so much for your imagination and your love.
    I am really glad to have you here.
