Mis padres: Romeo y Julieta is Pablo Fidalgo’s fourth book of poems, and it’s a personal quest around his parents love story. In 2014 the book will be published in Portugal and in Argentina.

I had two lives.
One was a small truth, the other an absolute truth.
What do you think I chose?
I know that in my house purity
is to come back filled with blood.
You clean the blood
because you think you know to whom it belongs.
