El narrador vio por primera vez a aquel hombre en 1971 o 1972, cuando Allende era aún Presidente de Chile. Escribía poemas distantes y cautelosos, seducía a las mujeres y despertaba en los hombres una indefinible desconfianza. Volvió a verlo después del golpe, pero en ese momento ignoraba que aquel aviador, que escribía versículos de la Biblia con el humo de un avión de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y el poeta, eran uno, y el mismo. Y así nos es...
