In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Alguien me soltó la mano
  • Marjorie Agosín (bio)

El día de tu muerteAlguien me soltóLa manoMe dejó caer en los abismosAlguien agredió mi feNadie estaba a mi ladoComo una niña huérfana quiseEncontrar el vértigo del vacíoQuise no tener ni historiaNi principioPorque tú al no estarMe dejabas sin míCaí al precipicio de esa nocheDonde la muerte no otorgó ni consuelo ni refugio.
