Nine Years Later - A Poem Dated

Notes

The poem recalls the Matanza de Tlatelolco of 2 October 1968 when the Mexican military opened fire on students staging an anti-government protest in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, Mexico City. You can find out more about the massacre on this page in Wikipedia

It is taken from Versión [Version] (1st edn, 1978; repr. México: Ediciones Era, 2005).

It took us three workshops to complete the translation of this extremely powerful poem, and we're very pleased with the results. Do send us your comments.
