The Sand Carriers
Val Villarreal, Jr.
There is a bonus attached to Mr. Villarreal’s new book of poetry: a one-act play which deals with seeing only what one wants to see to the detriment of a birthing consciousness. The novella deals with the would-be world the protagonist/narrator moves through, a not too pleasant one. As always, life is a format ever in the works in a Villarrealean piece!
“I've thought about the word “year” and how those people…
must have felt. Their yearning must have been of a great kind… tied to
thorns and great suffering. Why else would they have named their
segmental frames “years”? This yearning I find in my heart as well. I yearn
for the freedom that saves, for a freedom that cuts through the hunger―
...It's as if a thousand lights had fallen.”
