THE MUSHROOMS OF DONBAS
In spring Donbas disappears in the fog, and the sun hides behind heaps of earth.
So you need to know where you’re going,
you need to know the man who can make the arrangements.

This man was a worker in the former pumping station
worn down by alcohol.
When we met, he said, “We, the workers of the pumping station,
were always considered the elite of the proletariat, yeah, the elite.
When everything fell the fuck apart, many
just put their hands down. But not the workers
of the pumping station, not us.
We organized an independent mining union,
we took over three buildings of the former plant
and started to grow mushrooms there.”

“Mushrooms?” I couldn’t believe it.
“Yes. Mushrooms. We wanted to grow cactus with mescaline, but
cactus won’t grow here in Donbas.

You know what’s important when you grow mushrooms?
It’s important to get high, that’s right, friend – it’s important to get high.
We get high, believe me, even now we have to get high, maybe it’s because
we are the elite of the proletariat.

And so – we take over three buildings and start our mushrooms.
Well, there’s – the joy of work, elbow grease,
you know – the heady feeling of work and accomplishment.
And what’s more important – everyone gets high! Everyone’s high even without mushrooms!

The problems began a few months later. This is gangland
territory, you know, recently a gas station was burnt down,
they were so eager to burn it down, they didn’t even manage to
fill up, so of course the police caught them.
And so, one gang decides to take us on, decides to take away
our mushrooms, can you believe it? I think in our place anyone else
would have bent over, that’s the way it is – everyone bends over here,
according to the social hierarchy.

But we get together and think – well, mushrooms – this is a good thing,
it’s not a matter of mushrooms, or elbow grease,
or even the pumping station, although this was one of the arguments.
We just thought – they are coming up, they will grow
our mushrooms will grow, you could say they’ll ripen to harvest
and what are we going to tell our children, how are we going to look them in the eye?
There are just things you have to answer for, things
you can’t just let go.
You are responsible for your penicillin,
and I am responsible for mine.

In a word, we just fought for our mushroom plantations. There we
beat them. And when they fell on the warm hearts of the mushrooms
we thought:

Everything that you make with your hands, works for you.
Everything that reaches your conscience beats
in rhythm with your heart.
We stayed on this land, so that it wouldn’t be far
for our children to visit our graves.
This is our island of freedom
our expanded
village consciousness.
Penicillin and Kalashnikovs – two symbols of struggle,
the Castro of Donbas leads the partisans
through the fog-covered mushroom plantations
to the Azov Sea.

“You know,” he told me, “at night, when everyone falls asleep
and the dark land sucks up the fog,
I feel how the earth moves around the sun, even in my dreams
I listen, listen to how they grow –

the mushrooms of Donbas, silent chimeras of the night,
emerging out of the emptiness, growing out of hard coal,
till hearts stand still, like elevators in buildings at night,
the mushrooms of Donbas grow and grow, never letting the discouraged
and condemned die of grief,
because, man, as long as we’re together,
there’s someone to dig up this earth,
and find in its warm innards
the black stuff of death
the black stuff of life.

quebra verniz(es)

... por entre as algas, vejo a inveja, o ciúme, o ódio e o desprezo rastejarem como caranguejos por sobre a areia.

à deux pas de chez nous

Cecília

Nessa altura soube que não me tinha enganado [...] não era um marginal nem um assassino, era uma pessoa que tinha saído da vida.

La concierge me dit qu'ils ne sont bons à rien
Qu'ils n'ont pas les manières de chrétiens
Qu'ils respirent notre air et mangent notre pain
À deux pas de chez moi allez voir mes voisins
C'est vrai que nos grands-pères étaient des gens de bien
Qu'ils avaient des manières de chrétiens
Quand ils ont pris la terre d'Afrique aux Africains
À deux pas de chez moi allez voir mes voisins

barbas de molho

Cecília

Constatei o facto até mesmo em plena angústia, quando, torcendo o lenço entre as mãos, a Susan gritou: "Amo, odeio". Pensei: " Há uma criatura inútil a rir no sótão", e este pequeno exemplo serve para mostrar o modo incompleto como mergulhamos nas nossas próprias experiências.

March 15 marks 11 years since the eruption of peaceful protests against the Assad regime in Syria.

The pro-democracy demonstrations demanding change were violently suppressed, leading to a civil war that has cost the lives of hundreds of thousands and torn the country to shreds.

More than a decade later, a brighter future is still far on the horizon for the Syrian people.

bufarinheiros

Cecília

Vagueio de casa em casa como os frades da Idade Média que enganavam as raparigas e as mulheres casadas com contas e baladas. Sou um viajante, um bufarinheiro, pagando com uma caução a hospitalidade que me oferecem; sou um convidado fácil de agradar; alguém que ora dorme no melhor quarto da casa, na cama de dossel, ora passa a noite no estábulo, deitado num molho de feno. Não me importo com as pulgas, o mesmo se passando com o toque da seda. Tenho uma percepção demasiado clara da perenidade da vida e das tentações que a caracterizam para impor proibições. Apesar de tudo, não sou tão tolerante como vos pareço

ad ephesios

...só então farei algumas reflexões aparentemente casuais, mas repletas de profundidade (é com frequência as críticas mais profundas serem feitas por acaso)...
