Puerto Rico no sale de mí…


Taken from a fictional account of Puerto Rican bolero singer Daniel Santos.

“Salgo de Puerto Rico pero Puerto Rico no sale de mí. ¿Será otro síndrome del colonizado?…La canción de mi país me atrapa.”

(“I left Puerto rico, but Puerto Rico has not left me. Is this another syndrome of the colonized?…The song of my country seizes me.”)

—Sánchez, Luis Rafael. La importancia de llamarse Daniel Santos. La Editorial, UPR, 2000, p. 177
