arnoldo garcía: no one dies

 

IMG_0816

 

Sup Marcos committed revolutuonary suicide,

revolutuonary reincarnation,

a revolutionary act of self-immolation

so that Galeano would rise alive unwounded,

a spirit made flesh with paliacate smiles,

a zapatista Phoenix taking flight

from the ashes of that pipe-smoking masked brother.

*

Si Che viviera, también se llamara Galeano..,

*

Marcos stepped down

and Galeano stepped up.

Life trumps death.

Communities trump corporations.

Neozapatismo trumps neoliberalism.

*

As always with the zapatistas,

the creativity of life

trumps

the dogmas of death.

Life

reaffirms

life

and no one dies….
