The Climber Of Heights

Artemio climbs the Pyramid of the Sun,
not to pay homage to his ancestors.
No, indeed, because Artemio’s ancestors

were dirty little Indians from
modern day Tamaulipas,
living off fish and flotsam,

content with fish-eye soup,
mounting their women doggy-style,
greasing their hair with animal fat.

Whatever past he has, he’s proud of it.
Artemio’s never been a denier.
He’s an honorable fellow, not Spanish at all.
