Amd la soledad, la heroica peiduracidn de toda fe, el ocio donde crecen animates extrafios y plantas fabulosas, la sombra de un gran tiempo que pas6 entre misterios y entre alucinaciones, y tambien el pequeiio temblor de las bujias en el anochecer. Mi historia estd en mis manos y en las manos con que otros las tatuaron. D e mi estadfa quedan las magias y los ritos, unas fechas gastadas por el soplo de un despiadado amor, la humareda distante de la casa donde nunca estuvimos, y unos gestos dispersos entre los gestos de otros que no me conocieron.
