Crónica sobre el evento AQUI
y una interesante ensalada de crónicas,
entre ellas este evento,

La francotiradora


Me voy, te anuncio,
dejo las azoteas y mis botines rojos
de disparar.
No habrá otra igual en la ciudad.
Una sola bala por blanco,
sin mira telescópica.
Me voy, te anuncio.
Dejaré de apuntar a tu pecho
arrastrada tras los coches
o enterrada en el fango;
camuflada frente a la gran Esfinge
o descalza sobre las aguas de Nueva Orleans.
Me voy, ya lo he dicho,
nadie habitará este lugar jamás.
Y nunca volverás a caminar
con la mirada impaciente
de las víctimas.

Caracoles en las ventanas


Hay pájaros muertos habitando tus ojos.
Les oyes piar a veces
y te alegras.
Pero no escuchas nada
la mayor parte del tiempo.

Hay manchas en la ropa
que nunca se quitan.
Y en la piel.
Y en la sombra.

Porque nada de eso que anuncian
es cierto.

Vivir no es otra cosa:
manchas,
pájaros muertos,
y tus dedos dibujando caracoles
en las ventanas.

If by Rudyard Kipling


IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
