Title: Yo soy un hombre sincero
Rating: G
Notes: magic mirror AU
Summary: 1895. Doctor John Watson looks in a mirror. José Martí, poet & ‘apostle of Cuban independence,’ looks back.

Author’s Note: for the June prompt: travel & for the GYWO May Mirror, Mirror Challenge (one person looks in a mirror; a different person looks back) my prompt was ‘Havana, Cuba.’ The verse are from José Martí’s Versos Sencillos, which was the last of his poetry to be published before his death in battle in May 1895. Anachronistically (i.e., the song wouldn’t be written for fifty more years), Watson is humming Guantanamera, which is based on pieces of Martí’s verse. Translation at the end.
