Waldo Leyva was born in Remates de Ariosa, Villa Clara, Cuba, in 1943. He belongs to a generation of poets who have attempted to popularize poetry with a conversational tone and who have defended its inevitable connection to other artistic manifestations, especially music and painting. He is one of the most brilliant authors of the last three decades in Cuba and has had an important impact on many contemporary poets.

Perhaps you don’t know, Isolda; the blue hydrangeas
next to your door had to do with the last expression of
John Lennon, that unique way of looking at the camera
that only those have who know that behind the lens is
just emptiness, not the crowd. I looked in the mirror
many times, but it’s imposible, the secret expression is
betrayed only when the glass doesn’t reproduce your face.
