The Sand Carriers
by 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.”
