Life is finite. It hurts to exist.
The Soul squeezes tears that slide down the cheeks towards the mouth and I feel the bitter taste of the very existence of the being. In the same way, the walls of my Tucumán, exude and peel off its history, its culture, its experiences, the social, the anthropological, the neighborhood, my old woman with her flowered baton, the gathering of friends from the neighborhood in a corner where we drank a beer, the popular, the old and the modern. An endless number of mental or concrete images, which testify to our passage through this minimum segment of a universal and infinite straight line.

The electric light meters turn and mark the watts, interpret the energy of daily life or, they accelerate when they are around 45°C of thermal sensation in the shade, just like a pacemaker does when regulating the beating of the hearts of lovers melting into love and, if it stops, death is present and the door opens to what we don't even suspect.

Perhaps we will become just that, energy.
