Galeano On Salgado: 2
From Eduardo Galeano's "Salgado, 17 Times":
2. Hunger looks like the man that hunger is killing. The man looks like the tree the man is killing. The trees have arms, the people, branches. Wizened bodies, gnarled: trees made of bones, the people of knots and roots that writhe under the sun. The trees and the people, ageless. All born thousands of years ago - who knows how many? - and still they are standing, inexplicably standing, beneath a heaven that forsakes them.
