fffff

A fragile and barely audible Fidel Castro appears on TV.

ffff

I’m cold. It’s called fear.

hhhhhh

Fidel Castro just appeared on National TV as if coming out of a grave, like a nightmare, made of human debris with no light.

ffff

The physical presence of Fidel Castro reminds us that we live in a decrepit country. His ghost insists.
