THE FUSION WITH MORE FUTURE OF THE
INDIO GRIS Nº 35
I almost can't believe to have reached the 35th issue of Indio Gris, and at the same time, it causes me emotion, something similar to emotion, a small tear in the ocean, a breath of satisfaction in the middle of a cyclone.

If I'd stop making love I'd be free, also, from my neurosis.

That's what I complain about, shouted the wretch, not to be able to abandon life

poetry 40 or 50 years more, there will be a lot of people that won't be born.

century that went by.

this century drugs were invented, which leave without strength when I have them

the wretch was able to say this.
I want to address Mr. Arenas of the P.P. who demanded a measure from Mr.
Zapatero, at least one, against the crazy cows that the Spanish Government
wouldn't have taken. As Mr. Zapatero hasn't replied, we reply in his place. The
measure is simple and very beneficial for Spain. Spain must kill all its cows
and buy beef from Argentina, this way it takes care of the Spanish
population from the European cow disease and helps a Latin American
country, something it hasn't done for such a long time, but fundamentally, the
wealth for Spain will be obtained when all the breeders transform themselves
into agriculturists that will sow marihuana with which prevention of cancer will
be achieved in general and of the brain tumours in particular, of depression,
with which 70 % of the current illnesses will be avoided. Besides with marihuana
there won't be more frigidity in the ministers of health and not even impotence
in the ministers of interior.

I saw peace doves falling

which made you believe that food was freedom,
or else, that freedom and peace were possible without food.

Valencian government advises the Spaniards not to have sexual intercourse with
foreigners to preserve the Spanish race.
same government advises foreigners not to have sexual intercourse among them so
that they won't reproduce themselves and aggravate the immigration problem.
Mr so and so from the interior ministry denies to belong to the Mafia of
immigration, because he doesn't obtain any benefits from the immigrants, he just
makes them disappear.

holes start to open around me. The things tolerated for love start to present

immigrants want everything. Others prefer a little, some need almost nothing and
others only want to have fun and I know how to differentiate
them and I'm never wrong, in crossing our gazes I know what it's all
about. But I suffer from an incurable illness, I'm the interior minister of
Spain, I treat all immigrants equally:
WHAT A DELIRIUM! all of them equally, according to the Law that my illness has

kiss with ardour the lips of a rock and I sit down to write decrees when some of
them finds the way to burn some ocean with love.
I give them some love if they don't need it and I ask for love from she who never had it. I give the newly born their bottles and put their parents in jail for having loved and I prohibit the social security service to look after the child without parents, nor papers. Afterwards sleepy by hatred towards foreigners, I go to Mass to thank God because Spain is doing well and no immigrant realises it.
COW WAS ALWAYS
A LITTLE CRAZY
BETWEEN THE COW
AND THE MORIBUND
A book by MIGUEL OSCAR MENASSA
am tense, I have appetites, hungers of millenniums and now they'll want to
content me with some piece of cheese, excrescence of some pastoral cow, or the
same cow beaten to death and quartered on the table, recalling
ancient rites, where men ate
each other, and that was love.
I stab my small knife mercilessly into the cow's heart and the cow moos, it tears itself with passion in front of the murderer. I, with surgical precision, separate grease and nerves and I give my beloved one a morsel from the cow's burnt ovaries.
-We're free, she says to me, while she entertains herself with the noise of her teeth trying to chew the burnt parts of the universe. Later, lighter, making a mirage of everything, a lie, she says to me with ease:
A magisterial cow that moos and murders all the time lives in me. Sometimes she seems in pain, but nothing matters to her, she knows that she was born to be beaten to death, and then she shits everywhere and the mad flowers eat what is essential of shit and grow rapidly towards the future."
