As the moon, beyond the boundaries

He calls himself  ’el Mojado’, He explained to me the meaning of this word through a song by Ricardo Arjona:

Mojado is the ‘wet man’, the one who fell into the sea the same day in which he decided to cross it, and lost his tracks.

In spite of the fact of being nowhere, he is doing the good, even if he is no conscious of it. The way of doing it is a weird one, nobody can see it, as (almost) nobody can see the poetry everywhere. He is reading Sabina and listening to Arjona… to the few people who had the luck to cross his road and stopped at his side for a while, he is teaching them that everybody can live the poetry that there is in each word and note and, eventually, that each of us can transform it into real life.

In this way sometime  he spends a whole night drinking wine, but at the same time he can see the moon, gaze at it, and talk with God. During such type of days and nights, whatever thing happens, he believes that tomorrow the sun will raise again.

 …y no es de aqui por que su nombre no aparece en los archivos y es de alla por que se fue
si la luna suave se desliza por cualquier cornisa sin permiso alguno por que el mojado precisa comprobar con visas que no este Neptuno.

    “Hay ciertos momentos en la vida en los que uno piensa que ni siquiera Dios se acuerda que existes; en los que tu te miras a ti mismo como un ser solitario, intentando disfrazar esa soledad de misterio ante los demás, en los que te encierras en un mundo creado por ti mismo en el cual solo existes tu: un ser insignificante, que coleccionas sus errores. Hasta que llega un angel, que no solo t da una razon para seguir luchando y no que te mira de una manera diferente a la cual tu estas acostumbrado a mirarte, sino también te salva de ti mismo”. (El Mojado).
