El Mero Mero

dicen que guardian angels
saved his ass more than once

Gumesindo Salas would
have none of that

crediting his own
superior survival skills

stabbed twice
shot once

hit with a baseball bat
on the side of the head

out ran the cops
seven times

the cabrĂ³n
had nine lives

like a goddamn gato
diabetes took his life just like that

had no trouble
at all
