Flores Para Los Muertos


I went to see Maramiva today and brought her these flowers. I have not been there in a while, but the news makes me nostalgic for my old friend who often dryly observed that Americans only care about their basest envies.
Last week, the Hilton Prison "scandal" preempted coverage of the G8 summit on CNN.
Cast out from our particular niche, I believe Mara could have done much if she was still here, and her death was a wake up call for the rest of us.
As the presidential race continues its smooth summer simmer, I recall the scent of these flowers, once sickly, and now, beautiful.
They were emancipated, just like Mara.
