A Thuriferous Juniper forest, a quarry of sand and Marés stone, in silence, abandoned, walls of dry stone, the fish pond, the old salt mines, other isles, the sea, Ibiza floats above.

White light, blinding light, hot wind that twists the algae torn off the bottom of the sea, white sand.

The lizard stares then hides underneath the stone, underneath….but watching its territory, underneath

A hospital in Formentera?...Here?, ¡We don't want to disturb!.

Stone to stone and the Juniper forest, below…

Sand to the walls, sunglasses, give me shade, ¡so much light!...

Blue to the aluminium sky above, close your eyebrows ¡keep the sunlight out!.

Stone on stone,
below,
way below….
