ARMANDO ALANIS PULIDO

ALANIS CROSSES

 

The Monterrey poet at the site of the 2011 casino fire, allegedly set by the Zetas cartel, that killed more than 50 people. Thank you, Armando, for showing me the good and the bad.

A translation of an Alanis poem published in 1998:

 

Self-portrait

 

Here I am, always waiting

for a literary opinion.

 

Here I am, without finding 

a metaphor that encompasses you.
