    The collected poems. 


    “My gift to you will be an abyss, she said,
    but it will be so subtle you’ll perceive it
    only after many years have passed
    and you are far from Mexico and me.
    You’ll find it when you need it most,
    and that won’t be
    the happy ending,
    but it will be an instant of emptiness and joy.
    And maybe then you’ll remember me,
    if only just a little.”
