Mario Benedetti, In Memoriam





La última lluvia
A Mario Benedetti

Por Rodrigo Mundini



Entiendo ahora el frío
y el viento y la lluvia

entiendo ahora el silencio
el gris
de este domingo
entiendo ahora esta angustia
prematura y oprimente
es que
la muerte
la puta muerte

se hace anunciar aunque no quiera.
Hoy los bares se llenarán
de tristes poetas
hoy no importarán los desengaños
y esperarán hasta mañana
las historias de amor las parejas
vencidas los primeros besos.
Hoy llora la historia
llora la militancia
llora la letra hasta el verdugo
te llora Montevideo
te llora latinoamérica
te llora el progresismo te llora la poesía te llora,
Yo quisiera chocar contigo
esta dulce copa y brindar por tu ejemplo
bajo esta última lluvia
hasta siempre mario
hasta siempre compañero
hasta siempre maestro

desde aquí el abrazo
que no te supe dar.
