Espía mi bolso ofrece una poesía arriesgada, fuera de tópicos manidos, con chispa e ironía… Apuesta por lo femenino, el erotismo, l. a. tecnología que nos invade, los angeles literatura y los angeles gramática desde una visión más cercana. Nos conduce a l. a. intimidad desde un aparente distanciamiento.

Enseguida nos identificamos y sentimos los angeles emoción de algo que nos roza más allá de l. a. piel, los angeles curiosidad, el descubrimiento… Una provocación que convertirá esta lectura en una experiencia estética.
«Espía mi bolso es una auténtica delicia. Parecía que los angeles poesía amorosa había dado todo lo que tenía dentro, que constituía una proeza inasequible escribir algo sobre el amor que no se hubiese escrito de antemano, y hete aquí que tú contradices ese parecer desde l. a. frescura, los angeles pícara ingenuidad, los angeles docta sencillez de tus poemas.»
LUIS ALBERTO DE CUENCA
Quiero hacer sintaxis
con tu delicioso cuerpo.
en una coordinada,
copulativa, sin disyuntiva…
Variar entre subordinadas,
jugar a ser sustantiva
de tu complemento agente
—toda oración pasiva
me parece peligrosa—.
Jugar a ser adjetiva
del nombre que eres.
Jugar a ser adverbial
entre tantas circunstancias.
siempre aportan al núcleo.
Por no ponerme concesiva
en este análisis sintáctico.
