  • Moisés
  • Marjorie Agosín (bio)

Mi padre hablóMuchos idiomasPero siempre dudóDe las geografías y las palabras prestadas.Se enamoró de las sílabas del silencioDe la alquimia radiante de los elementos.Tuvo siempre que ser de otro lugarAprender idiomas extranjerosSer expulsado de pueblos y paísesPero siempre tuvo fe en sus orígenesDe niño nómade y descalzo.Por eso lo llamaron MoisésSalvado de todas las irasPríncipe de los justos y los solos.
