Red Planet The night still tastes like diesel fuel and dynamite gunpowder and gasoline. The sulphur smoke still lifts a chill along the spine of New York City while history cleans house around the world with sledgehammers and blood. Ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte they're whispering in Spanish Harlem while two hundred sparrows flutter over the hills of Castille and on toward Gibraltar High above the acrid stench a star floats like a ruby hung at the throat of Isabella, our androids comb its copper dust while mobiles chirp and babble in the pockets of the dead. A ghost is softly gasping on the face of that red planet as the orange blossoms bloom on the shores of the Mediterranean Then, sighing, she resigns to let her blind blue sister follow her into the lifeless universe
