another poet! i know i am not alone in saying my first lover was Pablo Neruda. his fire and appetite for life are so palpable in his art, i often wanted to call him on the phone for advice when i felt lost. realizing i could not reach him, i wrote this song to dance with him. the first verse is his. the second is my answer. a milonga that branches into other forms, this is a song of celebrating the power of living life close to the juicy core.
