Surrendering Surroundings or Surrounded Surrender

Only in retrospective I realised how my eyes unconsciously seek for the same patterns and compositions, the same elements and the same standpoint. Could it be that through those captured instants I am quenching a latent thirst for order and familiarity? Or are these just quotidian urban motives that compel me to stop, observe and capture?

Either a personal sense of aesthetic order (why not beauty?) and an urge to influence my surroundings impose my will upon the subject; or the aesthetic (beauty) of my surroundings subjects me and ultimately wills me to surrender to it.

Ventana sobre la llegada – E.G.

El hijo de Pilar y Daniel Weinberg fue bautizado en la costanera. Y en el bautismo le enseñaron lo sagrado.
Recibió una caracola:
– Para que aprendas a amar el agua.
Abrieron la jaula de un pájaro preso:
– Para que aprendas a amar el aire.
Le dieron una flor de malvón:
– Para que aprendas a amar la tierra.
Y también le dieron una cajita cerrada:
– No la abras nunca, nunca. Para que aprendas a amar el misterio.



hip sounds

This is what happens
after a few smokey brews,
chocolate and insomnia
on a Saturday night: sadly,
not a booty call, but still

They’ve done it!
They thought they were mad,
but they weren’t shaking that…
as they were recording
the curves of a dancer,
the boom in the bouncing,
the sounds and the answers
to mystical doubts.

This is what happens
in Saturday nights
when lunar collisions
spur mythical rhymes.
This is what happens,
this is what “sounds hip”
without the moon’s light.
