Broken faces


IF YOU HANG ceramic masks from the property wall with the cheap twine the seller provides, thinking you will install stronger rope later, but you rarely do, then sooner or later the masks fall and break. You’d think I’d learn, but I never do.

I salvage these broken pieces, and they sit forevermore on the ground or somewhere else solid, a graveyard of faces propped up like the mummies of Guanajuato — death on display for our unseemly amusement.

  1. At least you keep them even when broken. Apparently in Mexico, losing face is a very bad thing.

  2. I saw some similar yesterday at the flea market on my side of town. Round them up along with old clothes, other useless stuff and turn it into money for your cafecitos, but then again you get those anyway.
