Cleaving reinaldo arenas

Before Night Falls
—for José Saramago

night has—already fallen
for borges—and reinaldo arenas
as well as—for fernando pessoa
and all his—closeted heteronyms

now it’s our turn—to go like them
down the gutter—like new orleans
third world—katrina whores

under the heel of—castro & peron
left or right—what’s the difference?
we all end up—third world slaves.
