30 Jun 2017 – border

this no white-bread, pole-dance Kansas,
home of prepubescent twisters.
no, you troll tortilla borders –
raven-haired brown-sugar sisters.

melancholy WASP cirrhosis,
watered well by blue agave,
condescends to mock the mummied
hombres heaped in Hell’s Mojave.

snap your pictures, pale pendejos!
run before you get some on you!
here’s a hole men can’t climb out of –
tell yourself the lies you wish to.
