Author Notes

           Many years ago, I met expatriate Chileans who were new to my city. They had escaped the horror of the overthrow of Allende. They were only students at the universities back in their country who got caught up in the raging storm. Some had been tortured. They formed a folk music/protest song rag tag group and actually cut one album. I used to go listen to them sing in the local café to all hours in the morning. I lost touch with them over the years. Except today I bought a CD of Victor Jara's music and I was back with my compañeros again. I dedicate the poem to the beloved memory of Victor Jara.
