The Devil


“Everyone who comes to Me, stays.

The days are born glorious

Sprouting from hell

Its fire and light." --Satan


The Witch


“Witches were and are the most beautiful among us.

The Inquisitors drank their Period in Unicorn glasses” --Fray Tomás de Torquemada (XV century)



The Juggler


"I always went and sang as pilgrim

And they called me a juggler.

I perfumed the atmosphere

Of the people in the streets

Playing and singing

At the edges of palaces and castles”  --The Juggler

The Covid vaccine will not beat me. Daniel’s pic


People that you are looking for

The land of salvation

Well fucked up you got it

Although you raise your eyes to the sun.

Not the Covid vaccine

Not any other vaccine

Will conquer Death

Since the land that I promise

Flows fire and lava

Even if you plant your skin in it.

Your thirst for life

Drink in springs of gall

And with each step that you advance

Battered you will rest

In my cold hugs.

This is your inheritance

Of dust or ash on the head

Or in my land meek

Being your Word and verb

The cold darkness.

-Daniel de Culla

De Culla’s Pic


Constantino says to Maxencio:

Time is divided into centuries, years, months

Days, hours, minutes and seconds.

-What's the weather been like? You ask me

And I answer you by sucking my index finger

Right hand

Taking it out of the window now:

-Today we have a good time.

-What's the weather going to be tomorrow?

-Tomorrow is going to be rainy.

There is a time that we have to endure:

The succession of times and state

They are tough and difficult

And even more when the towns are tough

And impossible to govern.

-You know something, Maxencio?

"What thing, Constantino?"

-That things in good time

And turnips for advent.
