Minor Elegy For raul

Had a dream about raul last night,
he was telling me,

carnal, even in Aztlan the Fat Lady sings,
and I’m confused and ask raul,

“You mean the Fat Lady who’s supposed to sing
at the end of the opera?”

“Yes, the very one!” he tells me.
That idiot sportscaster, Dan Cook

from a San Antonio TV station
coined that phrase

and never, never have I hated San Antonio
as much as I do now.
