All efforts were in vain. That couple in love with sparrows insisted on nesting inside the boiler exhaust pipe. From that emanated a mysterious and convenient heat that attracted them like a magnet attracts iron. It took me a while to buy the metal net so they would not enter and when I went to put it … I found the nest. It totally obstructed the exit of the gases and there was no other possibility than to remove it from that place. That provoked what he most feared, its creators disappeared. It was made with such meticulousness, with grass, paper, feathers of other birds and, of course, plastics. Among the five abandoned, evicted and speckled sparrow eggs. I had it in my house for a long time, to remind me of something that should never happen again.

Madrid, year 2001.
