Galeano On Salgado: 4

From Eduardo Galeano's "Salgado, 17 Times":
4. The mouth, not yet dead, fixed to the spout of a pitcher. The pitcher, white, glowing: a breast.

This neck, a child's, a man's, an old man's, rests on someone's hand. The neck not yet dead, but already given up for dead, can no longer sustain the weight of the head.
