William S. Burroughs In Mexico City

They are both drunkards he and she
with glasses on their heads and .38 Specials.

He takes aim. He fires. Her head explodes
in shattered prose.

So matriculates the first William Tell
of the Apaches.

With ineffable grace buggering Massasoit,

extinguishing blunderbuss & turkey,

with a broken bough of swamp oak sweeping clean

behind each long-lying footstep of Pilgrim English.

E. A. Costa 28 January, 2015 Liberia, Costa Rica
