However, these traumatic images have become familiar to the narrator after their incessant repetition, and he begins to live with the ghostly remainders of the bodies. In this way, the stubborn, resentful tone of the lemebel la noche de los visions mirrors the stubborn memories that won't disappear.

The cronica thus ends with an oxymoronic "amargo florecer": Han pasado veinticinco anos desde aquella manana, y aun el mismo escalofrio estremece la evocacion de esas bocas torcidas, llenas de moscas, de esos pies sin zapatos, con los calcetines zurcidos, rotos, por donde asomaban sus dedos frios, hinchados, tumefactos.
