Urban ranch

the fattening of bulls in Santiago
has begun to progress. more than thirty thousand
head were exhibited this year. they say
it is the product of affection and the king grass:
a miracle cane that delights the women.
the change is most noticeable in The Quiet Ones,
every day more disposed to yield and cooperate.
‘fattening bulls is beautiful work’, they tell me.
the fight is on. you beauties, who once
ruled the clod, refuse
to accept the new order,
an order implanted by empowered little bitches.
Santiago de Cuba,
erotic yesterday
erratic today
too hot always,
once the realm of heroes,
today our little bitches turn it
into beautiful plantations of king grass.
