La hamaca ademas de ser el lugar del eros y el tanatos, es un espacio de creacion y recuerdos que acoge la soledad, el dolor, el hastio de la vida, la tristeza y la ternura: "Ven hasta la hamaca donde escribi/ el libro dedicado a tu sagrada presencia/ Ella me recuerda toda esa soledad/ que dormi en ella [...] En el vientre de esa hamaca recoste/ mi cansancio de la vida Acune dolores/ Me defendi de la canicula [...] Tiendete que yo te mecere para refrescarte/ si te es posible duerme Que yo velare" (112).
