LA CASA DEL PAN ⿿Entra en la nave blanca: mira la mesa donde está la harina-la harina blanca. ⿿Fuera del pueblo, apenas tuerce el camino a la intemperie, allí está la casa del pan-la nave blanca. ⿿Donde un negro de sonrisa vaga saca del horno las palas con el pan crujiente. Saca del horno inmenso, quieto, las palas con el pan crujiente. ⿿¿Desde cuándo estás tú aquí-se le pregunta-, desde cuándo estás entre la harina? ⿿Responde con veloces zumbas: desde las ceremonias y las máscaras, desde el velamen y las fugas, desde las candelillas y las máquinas, desde los circos y las flautas. ⿿Desde que se encendió el fuego en el horno.⿝ THE HOUSE OF BREAD ⿿Enter the white shop: see the table covered with flour-white flour. ⿿Outside the town, the path barely twists towards the open air, and there it is, the house of bread-the white shop. ⿿Where a black with a distant smile removes from the oven palettes of crusty bread. He removes the palettes of crusty bread from the enormous, quiet oven. ⿿How long have you been here?⿝ you ask him, ⿿how long have you spent with flour?⿝ ⿿He answers with ready jokes: since ceremonies and masks, since sails and escapes, since tobacco bugs and machines, since circuses and flutes. ⿿Since they lit the fire in the oven.⿝ Eliseo Diego ⿿The Whole Island is a masterwork of cartography: a map of what is, for English-language readers, an almost entirely unexplored territory, full of poets⿿at home or in the diaspora⿿whom we ought to know.⿝⿿Eliot Weinberger ⿿An uplifting anthology of Cuban poetry that is an excellent and timely resource for scholars and general readers alike. A worthy contribution to the canon.⿝⿿Oscar Hijuelos, Pulitzer Prize Winner
