Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'



Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'


The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.


The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Carlos Oquendo de Amat 5 Poemas de 5 Metros de Poemas--5 Poems from 5 Meters of Poems


5 Metros de Poemas--a view of the accordion foldout book-object unfolded

PLEASE NOTE: THESE POEMS ESPECIALLY THE LAST ONE, ARE ALTERED TO A LEFT MARGIN--SOME ARE NOT AS THEY APPEAR IN THE ORIGINAL--

POEMA

Para tí
tengo impresa una sonrisa en papel japón

mírame
que haces crecer la yerba de los prados

mujer
mapa de música claro de río fiesta de fruta

en tu ventana
cuelgan enredaderas de los volantes de los automóviles
y los expendedores disminuyen el precio de sus mercancías
déjame que bese tu voz

tu voz
que canta en todas las ramas de la mañana.



MADRE

Tu nombre viene lento como las músicas humildes
y de tus manos vuelan palomas blancas

mi recuerdo te viste siempre de blanco
como un recreo de niños que los hombres miran desde
aquí distante

un cielo muere en tus brazos y otro nace en tu ternura

a tu lado el cariño se abre como una flor cuando pienso

entre ti y el horizonte
mi palabra está primitiva como la lluvia o como los
himnos

porque ante ti callan las rosas y la canción



POEMA AL LADO DEL SUEÑO

Parque salido de un sabor admirable
Cantos colgados expresamente de un árbol
Arboles plantados en los lagos cuyo fruto es una estrella
Lagos de tela restaurada que se abren como sombrillas
Tu estás aquí como la brisa o como un pájaro
En tu sueño pastan elefantes con ojos de flor
Y un ángel rodará los ríos como aros
Eres casi de verdad
Pues para ti la lluvia es un íntimo aparato para medir cambio
moú Abel tel ven Abel en el té
Distribuyes signos astronómicos entre tus tarjetas de visita



POEMA SURREALISTA
DEL ELEFANTE Y DEL CANTO

Los elefantes ortopédicos al comienzo se volverán manzanas constantemente
Porque los aviadores aman las ciudades encendidas como flores
Música entretejida en los abrigos de invierno
Tu boca surtidor de ademanes ascendentes
Palmeras cálidas alrededor de tu palabra itinerario de viajes fáciles
Tómame como las violetas abiertas al sol.

Las cúpulas cantaron toda la mañana

Y la casa Nestlé
ha pavimentado la ciudad

El cielo de pie con su gorrita a cuadros

Las señoritas
con sus faldas plegadas de noticias
y sus ojos receptivos de celuloide

Los curiosos leen en sus ojos paisajes de América
y el puma que abraza a los indios con sus botas

surtidoresdeoro

Por supuesto de sus labios
volará una cacatúa

(Fragmento)1925
