martin... en viaje

todo relato empieza con un movimiento, desestabilización del personaje. en este caso, un viaje, una mudanza, periplo. de esto se trata: obviedades y petulancias: un portenio en córdoba

Peter Gabriel nos cuenta una pesadilla

Broadway Melody of 1974

Echoes of The Broadway Everglades
With their mythical madonnas still walking in their shades:
Lenny Bruce declares a truce / and plays his other / hand
Marshall McLuhan, casual viewin', head buried in the sand.
Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ships sailing.
Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline failing.

Ku Klux Klan serve hot soul foood and the band plays "in The Mood"
The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand,
There's a smell of peach blossom and bitter almond.
Caryl Chessman sniff the air, and leads the parade
He knows, in a scent, you can bottle what you made!

There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes
Smiling at the Majorette, smoking Winston cigarettes
And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home
With needles... Needles and pins.
