If the waltz is "todo lo revuelto que arriba" and "una playa sin ondas," the poem "El vals" is likewise a dead end (literally) or a dead ending--a "ceasing" in motion--in its quest to reveal the unrevealable. This textual self-reflexivity appears perhaps most overtly in the concluding line "Yo os amo," which suddenly brings the entire focus of the poem onto its creator and foregrounds the poet's empathetic identification with his human subjects who are themselves subjected to a law which decenters and divides.
