...It is so much, so many
tombs, so much martyrdom, so much
galloping of beasts in the stars!
Nothing, not even victory
will erase the terrible hollow of the blood:
nothing, neither the sea nor the passage
of sand and time, nor the geranium flaming
upon the grave.
Pablo Neruda, 1937
_Laat 2004 op de Universiteit van Warwick._
