Juarez Girl # 219

Her eyes smashed to a rosy color,
her panties torn by an asteroid,

a comet slamming into her belly,
a misplaced tornado twisting her brown hair.

The dusty, littered street
knew she was on her way to her cousins.

She herself did not know
she was going to spend the night in hell,

before she made it to heaven.
Juarez streets will fool you just like that.
