What do we remember? How do we remember? A whole life from a another time recalled in ten impulses of the memory, born like a poem. The Spain of My Father The images of my memories have caught the fading light of forgetfulness Small in-between moments seem to hold a magnifying glass over themselves where perceptions of you keep flowing in circles trying to find a focus the loud arena quick-moving raging black bull constant changing silhouette seen from a young girl’s eyes shut the curtains, somebody is smoking and listening to the radio as their trousers crease.
