Tu Allá Y Yo Acá

Frida is caressing a hippo. She strokes its penis.
The water in the bathtub is muddy and full of
grassy hippo poop. You can see Frida’s pelvis
and how her vagina is attached to it, her clitoris,
once a stony pyramid, now grows green like
summer grass in Ireland. The hippo’s round
teeth do not trouble her. The hippo roars like
a third world nation. Frida’s flowery dress has
dropped its heart. Frida’s tits are flat like
tortillas. Finally she dries the hippo with a huge
towel the size of Texas. Years later, when we get
the towel back, it’s still wet.

Footnote: Frida did indeed marry a
character created by Botero.

Now, I know what happens to Prince that turn into frogs; they turn into hippos.
