“Yo vivo también en un país extranjero
en el cual me dedico
a inocentes e inútiles tareas,
y en el que seguramente moriré
a la hora señalada,
como suele ocurrirle a la gente
en lo que llaman su propio país
o su país ajeno, pues no hay sino distancias
mayores o menores de frontera a frontera,
con líneas divisorias que uno mismo dibuja”

(de “Datos personales”)
