Salvo el crepúsculoEtty playing the guitar very well and singing She was seated on the ground singing to earn her living She sang a the ground singing to earn her living She sang a like Joan Baez a very pure clear voice There was a group of young people rom Barcelona listening I stopped to listen to her but I stayed in the shadows At one point one of these young men who was about twenty very young very handsome approached me At one point one of these young men who was about twenty very young very handsome approached me had a cake in his hand He said Julio take a piece So I took a piece and I ate it and I told him Thanks a lot The Magic Cake Shop for coming up and giving that to me He said to me But listen I give you so little next to what you ve given me I said Don t say that don t say that and we embraced and he went away Well things like that that s the best recompenseor my work as a writer That a boy or a girl comes up to speak to you and to offer you a piece of cake it s wonderful It s worth the trouble of having written So when I saw a small collection of his poetry titled Save Twilight I ordered it though the price was exorbitant Reading this poetry collection was an intensely moving experience He writes with the ink of his heart and each poem tugs you so much that one rests a while and waft in the beauty of it before moving to the next A lot of the endearing aspects of his persona as evinced in the above interview can be seen in these poems too The poet often converges with the man himself I am reading it parsimoniously to save some of the poems of Save Twilight or my rainy days afraid that the book would get inished too soon
