  • Dedication:

    For, and because of, my grandfather,
    Dedo ‘Dedushko’ Trajan;
    and to my mother, Mara,
    who went before me.

  • Epigraph:

    You can say anything you want, yessir, but it’s the
    words that sing, they soar and descend... I bow to
    them... I love them, I cling to them, I run them
    down, I bite into them, I melt them down...

    – Pablo Neruda
