FAREWELL TO MY NEW FRIENDS
19th january 1991
Hotel Central - Rotterdam
Well... Well, people...
very well in Imperial English, I`ll do it in Spanglish.
I’ ll tell you thay it is sure i’ ll never forget
our surrealistic lobby with specials personages
of the First Story.
That means complicated Marianne,
who everybody knows is not an usual Americaan,
a yankee, but of the good side.
Sweet not present Anthony who affirms
that histori is always been the same
bur in the meantime he changes.
Marion, the Eastindiaan girl laughing and loving
and offering her hand, her house, her home
as a real real human being.
Well, well, people.
Sure I dont forget the Iranian guy
who is here because of my compatriote,
the famous Che,
and also because Regis Debray
and who really deserves
in the world his place.
And the Turk,
as in Argentine we use to say,
who I can understand because he suffered
the Paraguayan human zoo.
All this with our quotidiane
guest or ghost, I don`t know,
people of the troupe!
I tell: The so called Hungarian Ed
and a gentleman named Willem van Toren
an a very strange German
who came al the last moment
and Joke, who I think
she really enjoy our minds and our means.
Hugo, who liked to be one of the party...
We wanted or not, wanted...
And to be in the mood...
the crazy war you can follow
A war to make you closed
in spite of the nonsense.
And... No... No...
Don`t be afraid!
I’ll not forget
Fat Gari who deals in parts of airplanes
and who is organizing a Festival in Florida,
in the States.
Really, really, really
‘t was a week I ‘ll never forget.
The crab and the frog
this is a french joke
an Argentine women like me told.
And that’s all.
