The Juarez Zombie

The girl they raped and shot
in Juarez,Mexico

comes back to haunt me
with her broken glasses,

her torn, cheap panties,
five teeth shattered,

by the gunshot,
hair fused together by blood,

her DNA like dead stars
fills the endless space of my nightmare---

dawn buries her,
but only until nightfall brings her back.
