America is...

John Updike wrote, “America is a vast conspiracy to make you happy.” Woodrow Wilson called America, “the only idealistic nation in the world.” Israel Zangwill said, “America is God’s crucible, the great Melting-Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming.”Barack Obama observed, “America is an unlikely place – a country built on defiance of the odds; on a belief in the impossible.”And, Hunter S. Thompson suggested, “America … just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.”

Se Murio Benedetti

Tengo una soledad
tan concurrida
tan llena de nostalgias
y de rostros de vos
de adioses hace tiempo
y besos bienvenidos
de primeras de cambio
y de último vagón.
.
Tengo una soledad
tan concurrida
que puedo organizarla
como una procesión
por colores
tamaños
y promesas
por época
por tacto y por sabor.
.
sin un temblor de más,
me abrazo a tus ausencias
que asisten y me asisten
con mi rostro de vos.
.
Estoy lleno de sombras
de noches y deseos
de risas y de alguna maldición
.
Mis huéspedes concurren,
concurren como sueños
con sus rencores nuevos
su falta de candor.
yo les pongo una escoba
tras la puerta
porque quiero estar solo
con mi rostro de vos.
.
Pero el rostro de vos
mira a otra parte
con sus ojos de amor
que ya no aman
como víveres
que buscan a su hambre
miran y miran
y apagan la jornada.
.
Las paredes se van
queda la noche
las nostalgias se van,
no queda nada.
.
Ya mi rostro de vos
cierra los ojos.
.
Y es una soledad
tan desolada.
