La Worm

El Louie
alias La Worm

married a light-complexioned
Mexican girl

an asteroid the size of the barrio
whizzed by earth unnoticed

Mayans crouched in the jungle
whispering, "we didn't go anywhere"

the Aztec sun spit blood
Incan gods bathed in gold

La Worm had a heart attack
coming out of a convenience store

the cop pocketed La Worm's lotto ticket
it was a loser too
