Cantina Blues

El ocho patas
went into a bar

although he himself
called it a cantina

he drank eight whiskies
with his feet

the bartender
told his stories

all about people
with two feet

the prostitute
of ripe repute

a boxer
who was lost outside the ring

local punks
with losing spunk

a teenage girl with curls
who walked by the bar's tinted windows

el ocho patas looked up from his drink and said
I know that girl
