Maybe it's better in Spanish. Lackluster reading.

Maybe it's better in Spanish. Lackluster reading. Too little pause between poems. Maybe try another collection.

Beautiful Imagery

I was a bit disappointed to find that my favorite poem by him wasn't in this selection but, I mean, it's still a wonderful collection of his work to listen to in bed to relax after a long day.
