Fernanda Lavera (b.1975-)
El Ahorcado, 2020
Acrylic, Marker and Spray Paint on canvas
79 x 45 inches
In my dream, at the end of the road
You were dressed in black, like death.
I saw you there,
gone, forgotten, like the passage of time.
Withered flowers in your hand you carried.
I tried to call you
your eyes wanted to answer me,
But your feet got out of the way
Goodbye, old friend.
