El Calientillo

To hear the politicians tell it,
the people are so misplaced.

I used to be a philosopher myself,
but I quit just in the nick of time.

A lesson is only that,
and nothing more.

The night Connie Sepulveda slapped me
when I was fifteen

because I did not
return her affections---

my hormones racing
I didn’t know there was affection.

Are you kidding me?
would echo from her flesh so pink.

So studious a cabron
of that I was, I was.
