“Alfredo had had a headache for years. No doctor has been able to do anything about it. That ache of the country:

‘I’m drunk,’ he told me.

He talked about other things and interrupted himself to explain to me,

‘I’m drunk. This has happened to me a lot.’

He served me wine. He sang without really wanting to.”

 

Days and Nights of Love and War
