At Doña Eduviges
Have you heard the cry of the dead?...

...I saw that there was no one, although I kept hearing what sounded like the murmur of many people in a market. A constant buzz without rhyme or reason, similar to that which is made by the wind rustling the branches of a tree in the night, when neither the tree nor the branches can be seen though their whispers can be heard. I didn’t dare take another step. I began to feel that the murmuring was getting closer and circling me like a swarm until I was able to make out a few words, almost void of sound: ‘Pray to God for us.’ That’s what I heard them telling me.
