que no
La sangre
corría por las venas.
Me levanté, te envolví
en una manta,
me agarraste l. a. mano, me miraste
a los ojos: el hombre
y los angeles mujer
que un día fuimos
inclinaron l. a. cabeza
en señal de despedida.

Esa fue l. a. mañana en que un hombre y una mujer perdieron a su hijo. Ahora, cinco años después, él emprende una marcha desesperada más allá del tiempo para encontrarse con este joven que ya no habla, ya no sonríe... ya no es.

En el camino le acompañan otros peregrinos, todos buscando a sus hijos, y en ese peregrinaje aprenden a desafiar a lamuerte y a morder el dolor.
