Roque Dalton made the stones laugh. He came from a small Central American country, which he had tattooed all over his body. There he was riddled with bullets. The poetry of Roque was like him, affectionate. In the face and in the poetry of Roque, a yaw turned into a fist held high. We do not need a minute of silence to hear his clear laugh. She sounds tall and always, killer of death, in the words that she left us to celebrate the joy of believing and giving herself. Edition by Juan Carlos Berrio.
