Efraín Huerta. Poemas prohibidos y de amor. 1973. 150 pp.

This is mostly crude propagandistic poetry, full of praise for Stalin, "el único hombre que sabe lo que piensa / y a quien los pueblos de la URSS / llaman el padre de todos los pueblos de la URSS." This would be bad even if Stalin weren't Stalin. When he turns to love poetry, of course, he is equally incapable of an original thought.
