Ventura: Always On The Move

man wearing baseball cap

I have crossed the border many times. That was my world, always on the move. I became old in that world. Had I not known Seattle, I would still be out there, going up and down on the trains. I don’t want to be in Guatemala, I want to be here. Maybe I will die here, or maybe I will die somewhere else.


Yo he cruzado la frontera muchas veces. Ese era mi mundo, siempre en moviimiento. Yo me hice viejo en ese mundo. Si no hubiera conocido Seattle de pronto estaría todavía allá, yendo
para arriba y para abajo en los trenes. No quiero ir a Guatemala. Yo quiero estar aquí. Tal vez voy a morir aquí, o tal vez muera en otra parte.
