Rewind To 3/28/39. Franco's Troops March Into Madrid!

On April 1, 1939 General Franco announced the end of the Spanish Civil War.


I want to sleep awhile,
awhile, a minute, a century;
but all must know that I have not died;
that there is a stable of gold in my lips;
that I am the small friend of the West wing;
that I am the intense shadows of my tears

from Gacela of the Dark Death
by Federico Garcia Lorca
