The End Of The Seguin Public Library

It was the coldest winter ever,
and when we ran out of furniture to burn,

we started with the books,
first Alurista and Lalo,

then Sanchez and Salinas---
both Raul and the Crazy Gypsy.

We burned the women, too,
as if they were La Llorona,

Tafolla, Alma Villanueva, Lorna,
La Sandra tambien,

the lost and luscious
Becky Flores,

and finally we had to jump
into the fire ourselves.
