Testimony At The Jose Emilio Pacheco
Bitter Divorce Proceedings

If Dylan Thomas was upon us
would Rosa Parks give up her seat on the bus?

If Johnny Milton was broke and blind
would his black sisters spare him a dime?

If Abelardo came back to read
would La Malinche’s brown ears bleed?

If Robert Lowell demanded a lap dance
would a young Mother Theresa step out of her pants?

If Joe Blow Mandelstam begged for his life
would the first stone be thrown by his wife?
