ritual


I droped some mezcal in Lowry's tomb and drank some for myself. Some other scholars who were there had a shot too. I placed an Alas cigarrete over the tombstone and it consumed over completely, people were impressed by the fact that it seemed that Lowry was actually smoking it, in that very moment there was a thunder and it began a tender rain. I droped also the beer completely and some anis shots, I left the complete bottle for him to drank slowly. For us Mexicans it is completely normal to do this kind of things and offer the things the dead liked when alive but the English were very surprised to see me talking Lowry and giving him those presents... cultural matters.
Vertí un poco de mezcal sobre la tumba de Lowry y bebí un poco yo mismo, algunos otros académicos que estaban ahí bebieron también. Puse un cigarro Alas sobre la lápida y rápidamente se consumió todo, la gente se quedó impresionada al ver lo que parecía Malcolm Lowry fumando en ese preciso momento se escuchó un rayo y empezó una lluvia tenue. También vertí una cerveza oscura completa y un poco de anís del mono, dejé la botella completa para que la bebiera despacio. Para los mexicanos es completamente normal hacer este tipo de ofrendas a los muertos, las cosas que les gustaban en vida, pero los ingleses estaban muy sorprendidos de verme hablando con Lowry y darle presentes... cuestiones culturales.

Lowry's epitaph

Malcolm Lowry

Late of the Bowery
His prose was flowery
And often glowery
He lived, nightly, and drank, daily,
And died playing the ukelele.

Remember that death is not the end, but only a transition.
We as mexicans see death as the natural consequence of life, as the next step. We all are going through it anyway.
But we understand that, when we die, we are not completely gone. In fact we stay and come back all the time. Just as Lowry does.
