a writer who has influenced my work for nearly 20 years

Ricardo Arjona has been my favorite lyricist since I was 12. And, somehow I hate every single one of his albums when they first come out, only to end up enamored and obsessed with them after a few weeks of listening to them. His latest, Quinto Piso, is now my favorite album. This song, specifically, is rich, lush, dry and striking. Listening to this, I am reminded of how and why my work is deeply rooted in pedestrian metaphor.
