When  you walk in the afternoon through the streets not believe in what you see, it may be false.

Ciudades incrustadas

Amo caminar por mi ciudad descubriendo las otras ciudades que hay en ella, como cambian y rotan a través de sus sombras. Ciudades duplicadas que terminan por devorarse a sí mismas. Como dice Norberto de la Torre ( autor mexicano):"...en ocasiones el sol parece detenerse sobre el llano, las sombras se dejan venir en marejadas. La ciudad puede transformarse en cualquier cosa: en un barco a la deriva; en una ballena moribunda; en un incendio; en la carpa de un circo gigantesco. Cuando camines en la tarde por las calles no creas en lo que ves, puede ser falso. La ciudad transcurre, como el tiempo, en un interminable desfile de disfraces y le gusta, sobre todo, vestirse de sí misma, repetirse, para quedar oculta y silenciosa entre el ir y venir de sus gemelas..."
