Translation: Penitentiary Negro de Lecumberri Prisoner Number 46788 Imprisoned since August 9, 1960 To Siqueiros, At Departure Here I leave you, in the January light, Cuba's liberated heart. And, Siqueiros, do not forget that I await you in my volcanic and snowy country. I've seen your painting jailed That is how they imprison fire. And it hurts me to depart, The outrage! Your painting is the beloved homeland, Mexico is with you, prisoner. Pablo Neruda Mexico City, January 9, 1961 I make extensive what Pablo Neruda's beautiful and solidarity homage means, to my prison mates, Vallejo, Gilberto Rojo Robles, Filomeno Mata, Dionisio Encina, J. Encarnacíon Pérez, Valentín Campa, Alberto Lumbreras and all those imprisoned comrades incarcerated for the same political repressions. David Alfaro Siqueiros
