*Juan Carlos Suñén. Cien niños. 1999. 110 pp.

There are fifty prose poems, with Roman numerals. Each one has a single footnote. The setting seems to be some kind of home or asylum for children. There is a balance between anecdote and its erasure or effacement. That is, between a certain narrative reading (the book as a series of vignettes) and a certain opaqueness.
