'God carries me on his back'


The body enters the house, instead of getting on the plane, which would bring it to Mexico City first, and then to Oaxaca. It could still catch the evening bus there, crossing the mountains over the night to Puerto Escondido. It would travel on a truck in the piercing light of the early morning, all the way down on Highway 175. At Puerto Angel it would squeeze into a cab with eight other passengers. They would reach for the horn of the Huatulco bay that resembles a sweet water lake. Waiting in the shades a fisherman would come and offer a ride, crossing, for a few dollars, to the other side of the lagoon.

Not every man with a boat is a fisherman, and not every fisherman is to be trusted. But that crumbling skiff is safe. It holds a native couple, old and withered, in dresses adorned with flowers, marking a celebration, ready to set off to the sea.

The lagoon is a natural reserve, and the boatman turns the engine on sparingly. The venomous green below is split with rare thrusts.

Amidst the matt white respiratory roots that crisscross the thick mangrove marsh, tiny, unknown species of heron appear. The silence of the engine gives way to their chatter.

The road is not long enough for the mind to grasp what has been penetrated. As soon as the boat hits the shore, little black children run across the hot sand to greet the passengers in a mix of native languages. One of them nods at a question and repeats the name of the place, then turns silent, points at one direction, and runs away.

Those who follow him, arrive at mud huts under palm roofs. Progress is slow in the soft sand, stumbling through big black hens of strange shapes.

But upon passing the village, all the strangeness, along with everything else, disappears at the instant when the space opens up. The endless ocean fills the horizon. They say that sometimes in the distance, around where the loud turquoise of the salt water changes into blue with a tint of black, whales show themselves.

But the body is not going. It only dreams, once in a while, with wild horses.
