Tak seorangpun yang menulis kepada Kolonel (Gabriel García Márquez)

         Kolonel menemukan stoples kopi dan kemudian menguji lebih dari satu sendok teh. Dia mengangkat panci dari kompor, menuangkan sedikit air di lantai dan menggoreskan  pisau ke dalam toples pada panci hingga goresan terakhir dari kopi bubuk menyisakan buih timah oksida.

El coronel no tiene quien le escriba (Gabriel García Márquez)

     El coronel destapó el tarro del café y comprobo que no habia más de una cucharadita. Retiró  la olla del fogón, vertió  la mitad del agua en el piso de tierra, y con un cuchillo raspó  el interior del tarro sobre la olla hasta cuando se desprendieron las últimas raspaduras del polvo de café revueltas con óxido de lata.

You could never tell (The Horrors)

We sat in the half light
I didn't know what to say 
Oh you could never tell 
Why I do these things 
Why did I do these things 
I knew I wouldn't want to know 
I have betrayed myself 
For something poor and shallow 

She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard

Finally I'm closing in 
On what I have been chasing 
But as the moment comes 
It's just by expectation 
Ice wings of paradise 
The sky will try to follow 
That first kiss you had 
Will curse all your tomorrows 

She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard

Is it any wonder 
I easily find her 
I stand by the fountain 
When I call she answers 
Though I say 
No I don't know 
You're right

She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard
She was talking about 
Something she heard

Something she heard
Something she heard
Something she heard
Something she heard
Something she heard
