Cold, Cold Water

November 16th, 2005
I remain your father Rui, and in love with you.
There are lots of political and legal subjects to study. I’m always at work on it.
I have an intellectual understanding of it by now. A systemic reduction of people to mathemes.
But I will never quite fully grasp the cruelty of the one who did this to you and me.
To abduct a child requires a deeply dehumanizing vision – especially of those who are the nearest targets of that vision.
Reach out and touch, Rui. I will do the same.
Cold, cold water surrounds me now
And all I’ve got is your hand
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Or am I lost?
