PALABRAS PARA ENCONTRARTE: Microrrelatos. Microcuentos, by LAURA CHICA,Benjamin Prado

By LAURA CHICA,Benjamin Prado

''No sé si este libro pretende ayudar a alguien y si podrá hacerlo, pero que no existiera sólo serviría para empeorar las cosas. “Callar mata”, cube Laura Chica. Son sus dos palabras más a ladas, pero nos hacen ver que de l. a. misma forma que un cuchillo de mesa puede convertirse en un arma, también un puñal se puede transformar en un bisturí. Y ésa es justo los angeles otra cara de los angeles moneda: escribir cura. Al menos, no parece imposible que después de leer estas páginas se puede sentir mejor y ver más claro. Es una gran razón para leerlas.''
del prólogo de Benjamín Prado (Poeta. Escritor)

Palabras para encontrarte cuenta con ciento treinta y seis «desnudos» en forma de episodios, algunos de ellos dedicados, otros autobiográficos. Todos tienen algo en común: el compromiso de no confundir nunca el conocimiento con los angeles sabiduría, que todo se pierde si se guarda, que solo se gana si se da. No olvides pasarte por el bonus music, un apartado ya clásico en los libros de Laura, que nos recuerda que «si no duele, no es poesía».
«Quizá vivir implica
ser infiel a los demás
para ser fiel a uno mismo».
Laura Chica es una oda a los angeles poesía a los angeles que no se los angeles adereza, a los angeles poesía que se come cruda y al punto de sal. Y por esta razón, Palabras para encontrarte es un libro que te embriaga lo suficiente como para no encontrar el camino de vuelta a casa, porque ya estás en casa.
Eloy Cánovas, en El Buscalibros.

..."Hay veces en las que solo sabes que algo es, cuando no sabes por qué. Esa capacidad de no poder encontrar una respuesta concreta, un algo exacto, una razón consistente, para saber por qué. Pero lo sabes.
Me gusta no saber contestarte cuando me preguntas por qué te quiero. No lo sé, pero lo sé.
Y sé que te quiero porque no sé por qué te quiero.
Y el día que pueda contestarte a esa pregunta, quizá sea tarde, quizá ya no sea, o quizá sea de otra manera; porque si se puede explicar es que ya no será este amor.
Y yo no quiero un amor con respuestas. Y yo no quiero un amor en el que pueda explicarlo todo.
Yo amo las palabras que no me salen cuando me preguntas por qué te quiero
... y no sé qué contestarte."
