For the Ladies in White.

Those emblematic white roses, mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, with their marble whiteness, they face the olive-green intolerance that perfumes the streets and the scene. Monuments to the Virgin Mary, representatives of dignity, heirs of history, makers of dreams, fragrances of butterflies, constant sentinels of the sun, lineages of Mambisas (Cuban fighters of independence from Spain), fighters for the truth, persistent builders, laborers of the future, depositories of love, consistent with life, opponents of repression, germinators of peace, faithful followers of Martí, wishing for hope, softness of women in solidarity, affection, hugs, and kisses, daughters of the Virgin of Charity.

Pedro Arguelles Moran. October 31 2006. Provincial prison of Canaleta. Ciego de Avila.
